Hey All

Quite simply, is there any hard and fast rule/way to set up your driving lights PRE- TRIP. I mean you can set up your vehicles factory lights by following the diagrams in the factory manual, but where is there a chart or dimensions for setting up the many different variables involved in driving lights. There is nothing worse than when you go to use the buggers and they are nothing more than possum blinders and you have to get out with a shifter in the dark and reposition them.

Any ideas would be appreciated

Hi Andy.
I just replaced my driving lights & used the old method of a spanner & a very dark road to do the adjustments.
It worked fine!

You can get close in the shed etc - but NOTHING beats a long flat backroad at night, even better if it is slightly foggy or misty.. Sorry buddy but 5 minutes in the dark is all you need. BradLife is short- but there's always time for a yarda.

Long dark road, couple or three coats or whatever to cover your headlights and other driving light and set them up with a spanner and your eye, do one then the other with the other loghts covered and then check them together and with the headlights uncovered, works a treat.Laterally Literal
