    Headlamp aim

    I was just wondering if there is any way to set up the S&J headlamps at home in the garage or do they have to be set at a proper MOT garage?

    Cheers

    Yep, pop the trim rings off and you will find 2 screws for adjustment (1 for up/down, 1 for left/right) - Do it at night and park facing a wall, there's plenty of "DIY headlight alignment" on Google for distance measures etc. When you go for your MOT leave the trim rings off and have a screwdriver handy - they'll probably do it for you if you ask nicely.

    The mot garage will do it, but bear in mind the standards they do it to are different to what is expected at IVA. I got the garage to do it but still had to adjust at Iva. Much easier when they let you use there little machine. Takes 5 mins.
