    I have a 1991 Hymer 544 with the rectangular headlights. It's an import and the lights are set for LHD use, with beam benders fitted.

    Is there a way of adjusting the lights to UK settings?

    unfortunately not....it will always dip to the right.....its the pattern on the lens and the slight twisted angle of the bulb that decides..:Sad:

    Hi.
    I'm afraid you will have to keep using beam benders or fit new lenses, these are normally readily available and easy to change. Just check the manufacturer of the lens, ie. Hella and google it.

    I have a LHD Hymer .Bought some S/H Headlights from a RHD Fiat ducato van off EBay and fitted them cheaper than new units. Worked OK only problem was at the MOT test when the aim was too far to the near side ,on one of them and the ajusters would not move it enough, so I had to pack the mountings to direct the beam.Also if you can be bothered you can fit the old units back if you go to Europe for long periods.
