Headlamp range control - removal and refitting
Body electrical systems / Headlamp range control - removal and refitting


1 Where fitted, this system is designed to provide the driver with in-car headlamp adjustment to counteract the effects of heavy loading at the rear. The system operates on dipped headlamps only and the light units are raised or lowered by means of an electrically-operated motor mounted at the rear of each unit. For safety reasons an integral height adjustment limit control is fitted.

2 The range control switch can be removed in the manner described for facia switches.

3 To remove a range control motor from the rear of a headlamp unit first disconnect the battery earth lead.

4 Pull free the plug connector from the rear of the motor unit.

5 On round headlamp units, detach the motor from the frame by twisting it to the right (clockwise) (see illustration).
