|Manually Adjust the height of my C4 or DS4 headlamps Halogen or Xenon Discharge|
Hi Guys, I was wondering if any of you C4 techy's can advise me on how to adjust my dipped headlamps on my C4 coupe, I noticed that it has some kind of "Hex" adjuster, do I need special tools to do this with and where can I buy these ?
The elec adjuster is at its default setting which is "0" its just when I'm driving at night I feel that my dipped beam is slightly low and wondered if I could do this adjustment myself or pay a garage a fortune instead?
All variant C4's have the same headlamp units, Coupe, Hatch, DS4, C4 Picasso and Grand Picasso.
Depending on model (there may be slightly differing layouts):
If you remove any covers around the headlamps (washer bottle, air box depending on the model) you will see on the inner, rear edge of the headlamp a white piece of plastic sticking out about 1.5"
You can turn that manually by hand.
The other is on top of the light unit and needs a Hex (allen) key to turn it.
HID Xenon Discharge headlight:-
For the NEW C4 Picasso Range the adjusters are in a different location:

Here is a picture of the Offside (drivers) headlamp.
The vertical adjustment is by a 6mm Allen key, the other adjustment for the horizontal can be seen at the rear, as a hex head screw of approx. 6mm A/F.
