Seized head light adjuster on 2007 headlights

Hi, just joined so please accept my apologies if this has already been answered.

The headlights on the jag are abysmal in dipped making it dangerous to drive in the dark. My mechanic says the automatic adjusters are seized and so need  replacement headlights. I’ve looked on auto spares sites and there are 2 sorts HID and normal. So 2 questions, can the adjusters be replaced without the full assembly and which lights would a 2007 stype diesel  saloon have?

Thanks

hi

depends what they have, you would have to post a pic up, standard were halogen and as a option you could have the hid

you can buy the adjuster kits off ebay, then remove the headlight and replace them, means pulling the bumper off to remove the lights

the adjust inside break as well, very common fault, all the parts come in the same kit

cheers

Thank you for the information, much cheaper than new headlights! Photo attached which I think is HID when comparing to pictures on the web but would appreciate confirmation. Next stop YouTube to see if it’s something we can do as our mechanic obviously isn’t aware that the adjusters can be replaced.

hi

yes there the hid option

the adjuster should go fully up and fully down then level, ever time you switch ignition on, if not theres a fault, needs to be reset

adjuster break in these, when you order them make sure you state hid xenon lights as adjusters on these are different

once the headlights are off, pop them in the oven on about 80 deg C for 10 minutes, it softens the black sealant and the lenses come off easy

also you have to disconnect the battery before unplugging the lights, or the self leveling stops working, can only be reset with Jaguar ids/sdd or some icarsoft readers

done a few of these, quite straight forward, also swapped my bulbs for 8k ones, there slightly blueish, much better light

cheers

well its easy to tell, watch the headlight while some one switches the ignition on and see if they move

if you put the light on first and switch the ignition on, in the dark you can see the dip beam go up, then down, then level, if it dont, theres a fault and will need reseting

cheers
