MK3 Headlight Adjust
 
Anyone know how to adjust the headlights in a MK3? I had a headlight replaced and now one is higher than the other.

I am at work and it is dark out. Figured I'd ask so when I go look I can fix it quick.

Its in the owners manual.

However there should just be a screw somewhere to adjust the height of the beam. There is no horizontal adjusted iirc.

I have seen it in the owner’s manual as well, but have looked at the headlamp and I can’t see any adjusting screw.

It is in the owners manual. The photo is useless went out to the car and can't make heads or tails of where it is. Might have to remove the headlight to find it.

I have and still did not see it.
I figured I would stop by the dealer sometime and ask someone to show me.
Or maybe someone here who knows will post a pic with a BIG RED ARROW to point it out.

It is in the manual and it tells you to use a Number 2 Phillips screw driver (+). ON the back of the headlight housing there is a small vertical hole in which the screwdriver goes into and turns a plastic cog basically that heightens or lowers the beam up or down.

Just take the whole housing out, it is only 2 screws and then you can get to the bulbs on the back.
You can also reach down and get to the fog light bulbs with the housing out.

Thats what I was thinking - way easy to handle that way.
