Adjusting LED headlights on an F56 hatch.

    Hi just wondering if there is any way to adjust the LED headlights on an F56 hatch as they seem to be very low and visibility is reduced dramatically.

    Since the dark nights are coming in I would like the lights to be slightly higher as Iím on a lot of back roads.

    Thanks
    Chloe

    They are self levelling Chloe and as far as I’m aware can’t be adjusted unless by a dealer if they have been knocked off alignment.

    ‘The car you had was an LCI with different LED lights that give a different spread of light to non LCI

    The R53 Xenons were supposedly self-levelling but there were actually 2 manual adjusters on each headlight, one for up-down and the other for left-right. Seems there are similar adjusters on the LED lights too. Let your chosen search engine loose on 'mini f56 led headlight adjustment'.
