Wishes to everyone. I own a Ford Fiesta 2009 model with around 52k kms on the odo.
A few weeks back, the leveling motor of the RH Head Lamp had failed and I found the light throw from RH Head lamp totally out of focus. The bulb holder started shaking violently and it did fuse a couple of bulbs.
That's when i decided to get it fixed (permanently) and was advised from Ford A S S that the entire assy needs to be changed. The change was done yesterday but I have the same issue now. Though the leveling motor seems to work fine, I find the high beam and low beam totally out of sync.
In the LH side the low beam and high beam are perfectly focused while the RH side's high beam lights up the top if the trees instead of the road. I reported this to the A S S as soon as the unit was assembled. The technician tried adjusting it and said that's all about the adjustments. I though I will give it a try in the night time and said I'll get back to them after proper testing.
I did try adjusting the Up and Down with screw driver but that works only for Low beam and High beam, I think, should react according to Low beam's adjustments.
Secondly, I also noticed that the new assy has an offset. To make it clear, the LH Head lamp is able to move from (0,4) to (0,-2) say. But the new RH assy is able to move only from (0,4) to (0,0). This again brings in the same trouble - Out of focus lights.
Hope I'm make it clear. Please see attached pics. I would like to hear from experts here what could be possibly be the reason so as to defend the "Sir, this is how it works" statement from A S S
Form the attached images, you can see how the low beam are in sync (IMG1) and how the high beam is focused in LH and RH (IMG)
