I have a 11 year old RAV4.3 with headlights and the dash roller switch that can move them down if I have weight behind.
I bought a good quality HID kit (HIDS4U) for my H11 projector dipped beam and fitted it myself. Not difficult, and I barely do an oil change myself these days. Both lights come on well and throw a clear horizontal line as they should.
1. The line is too high. At the HID kit recommended range of 7.5m from a wall it is about 63cm high, but it should be just below headlight centre which is about 48cm. I see the vertical adjuster, a bizarrely hidden white screw with 6mm? Hex head at the base of a narrow V. But I need a hex bar 20cm plus to get to it! Is that right, do I have to buy a special tool? Seems weird.
2. Will I succeed to lower the line 15cm or is that so far out of spec that I should try to re-mount the bulb first? I’d prefer not to...!
3. As the car is a daily I used the roller wheel to keep the lights low for the moment. I can see it lowers the driver side light a bit, then stops, but continues to lower the passenger side much more. Is that normal or is something wrong with the driver side, and any idea what? Motor, adjuster, stone jammed under it? I’d have thought it more logical that pax side adjusted little as then I only blind hedges, not oncoming traffic..
(Please no digressions into the legality of the kit, I’ve followed them a lot on another forum...)
