Hello everyone,
I have adjusted my drivers side euro light correctly for high and low beam, but my passengers side headlight is not properly adjusted on LOW BEAM ONLY. I cannot even see the beam to adjust it, it looks faintly lit. Could it be a connection problem because of the high beam being aligned ok? It seems to me that if the high beam is correctly adjusted, the low beam should be right? Any input is a great help, Scott
Scott

To properly aim your Euros, read the section at: http://lighting.mbz.org/tech/how_to/aim/ I believe they say to aim them on low beam only.
Also, is it possible that the low beam filament is burned out on one side? This wouldn't affect the high beam pattern, but you would see a difference in the low beam light. It could be a defective bulb as well. Try swapping bulbs from left to right. If the problem follows the bulb, it is a bulb problem. If it stays with the same headlight regardless of the bulb, it is a wiring or connector problem. If it goes away completely, it is dirty contacts or a sloppy connector.
