Default 308 Headlights Advice Required.

Is it possible to adjust a right hand drive 308SW 2009 Headlight with the adjusters at the back of the headlight cluster for use in France or do I have to buy new headlights?

no as the angles are all incorrect for the beam pattern you will need beam correctors

Point the car at a wall and turn on the dip headlights. You will note the beam tips up on the left, this is your problem. You need to mask a part of the beam to stop this, I used some gaffer tape, but you do need to know where to put it.
You can buy beam convertors from most auto parts stores, and online, and they come with fitting instructions for fitting. Get one, use it the first time, but remember where it was put on to the lens, then use gaffer tape the next trip put in the same place.

Certainly no need for replacement headlights, unless you are exporting the car to France on a more permanent basis.

Fortunately the new LED units fitted to my new 308 don't tip up so no adjustment is required.
