    I need to mask the headlights on our Transit based Chausson but can't find out where to stick the masks. Phoned several dealers, nothing in the handbook, nothing on the lens.
    Somewhere there is an answer but I can't find it.

    That's the solution I was favouring.

    Get a "universal" type one - it tells you in the instructions where to stick it relative to the dipped headlight bulb.

    Our converters are still in the glove box.

    Since 2010 when we had our first French trip in the then new van!

    Simplest way to find the right spot is to park in front of a light coloured surface, switch the lights on and see where the masks need to be to stop the 'kick-up' part of the beam.

    Bought some by "Eurolites" suprisingly good instructions. The old bill don't need much excuse to stop you so why give them one.
