      XUV500 headlight adjustment screw

      Hi Guys,

      A quick question, in the engine compartment of the XUV, above or near the headlights, both the low and high beam, there is a sliver screw with shark teeth kind of design. Can it be used to lower or raise the headlights? If yes, either turning it clockwise or anti-clockwise will raise or lower the beam?

      Thanks.
      Warm regards

      You just have to turn it and find out. Point the car to a wall and draw a line with tape and turn the screws. When I adjust my lights, I still don't remember if I turn clockwise or counter clockwise. I have done this many times before.

      Thanks Indian. Will try it over the weekend.

      I can see two such screws, one each for the low and high beam. And I have a feeling that it might change the vertical movement/focus of the headlight (based on my experience with Santro). Could not see anything for the horizontal/lateral movement/focus.

      Btw, did you use any special tool to turn the screw?

      Thanks.

      Use a tool that fits the screws. In my car I have 2 screws. One to adjust horizontal beam and the other to move the beam sideways. Mine uses a H4 bulb.

      The Up-Down Adjustment in XUV is near Leveling motor at the back of the Headlights. You will see a downwards hole to insert Philips Screwdriver (Can see white screw inside). Be VERY careful with the turns. Not more than 4~5 Turns max to max. Its easy to ruin these Plastic gears.

      Small tip- Keep Internal Level Motor switch at 1 or 2 when adjusting. Once You get good focus, You can fine tune Position from inside when driving.

      Thanks bhvm. However, I can see a metal wheel with kind with serrated teeth (shark tooth kind), no plastic gear. Am I looking at the wrong part?

      The internal switch can adjust only the Low beam. It has no effect on the High beam. Just tested it yesterday.

      Sorry, forgot to mention that the metal wheel with teeth is present for both the low and high beam headlights.

      That Makes sense.
      BTW Pics will help regarding rear of Headlights and screws you are talking.
      I think there is also a guide in User Manual to help

      Hi Guys,

      The wheel with teeth (kind of screw) does not change the headlight focus (up or down), at least I could not see any change. Will check with my SA. Thanks.

      I could adjust them at home.
      BTW do inspect with the SA what he is doing. Often its very simple. Maybe you are not finding the correct screw.
