Does removing and replacing the whole headlight unit not alter the alignment at all then? or do you then have to fiddle to get the heaight etc. right again?Unless you've got triple jointed wrists and pliers for fingers......
I usually drop the bumper, I've done it a few times now so it's only a couple of minutes with a Torx driver then take the whole headlight into the kitchen and do it on the table!
First time I had to change a H7 I had no choice, it was 8pm last November and I fitted it outside my local Halfords in darkness. After slicing my hands and losing much blood I borrowed a torch from a member of staff and eventually worked out how the clips go on, so simple when you know how. Sidelights can do without bumper removal, though on nearside I had to tilt the headlamp forward a bit by undoing the top bolts, but that's it. Had to unbolt and tilt the battery to do the indicator on that side as well, but then those who saw my car on Sunday will know how much empty space is in my engine bay i wouldnt take the bumper off it takes 2 minutes, its only hard if dont understand how the clips work, if have to get a little mirror and see, but i wouldnt take bumper off.
No - 4 screws hold each headlight securely and only if you actually turn the adjuster is the alignment affected.Does removing and replacing the whole headlight unit not alter the alignment at all then? or do you then have to fiddle to get the heaight etc. right again?
