    On my old Fiat Ducato I used to stick some tape on the nearside headlamp to prevent dazling others with mt headlamps when on dip. There are no markings at all on my new(er) van to indicate where to put them. What do any of you guys do?

    If you can't get specific instructions for your lamp unit.

    1. Get some deflectors.
    2. Park a few metres back from a garage door.
    3. Turn the lights on.
    4. Find the bits of light that flick up to the left on the garage door.
    5. Move the deflectors about until they disappear, if you are lucky reappearing to the right.
    6. Unpeel the sticker and attach.

    Modern headlights often require the deflectors to be on the bottom half of the glass.

    Hola Dolomite Pete
    I have a 2002 fiat Benimar left hand drive and when we came to England For visit a few years ago I tried to get reflectors to do the same but opposite , I was told here in Spain don't be daft why would we stock them everyone except Engalnd drives on the correct side :Rofl1: anyway when I came over to England I just drove on dipped lights with no problem and over here I notice many Brits seem to do the same.
    I personally would put reflectors on because they must be cheap to buy in UK.
