Headlamps

Gent,s,

Slightly off topic but i have a lot of trouble like Spridget in getting any response from Susan Miller, like many on this board I try to follow the advice and recommendations from members here who highly recommend Susan's business and certainly the parts are all OK, the freight is always fair and reasonable but communication is such that I am having to consider other suppliers who do at least communicate. I will put some money into my Skype account and give Susan a call in the hope that I can persuade her to at least acknowledge emails correspondence.

Steve at SJ is very good, and will spend time trying to find parts if he doesn't have them. He won't sell you stuff you don't need either. Highly recommended.

Sue Miller is nearly always available by phone, very helpful and always gets my business.

Yes I also go Sue Miller first (very often sends me the stuff before I've paid - who else would do that these days!) and then Steve at SJ.
Both very good and have often convinced me to spend less. Again who would do that these days!
Regarding the headlamps on +2's (the later failsafe) I have found that one headlamp is still aiming too low even when the adjustment screw is at its limit. Is there any 'stop' on the raising mechanism which would allow just the one pod to lift a little further?
Thanks

There are stop pads for the headlight buckets to adjust the rasied and stowed position on the inside of the inner wing, accessible through the nose. Sounds like these are set unevenly on your car.

Cheers

Cheers Robbie I thought there had to be some means of initial 'coarse' adjustment somewhere before doing the fine adjustment with the screws on the headlamp bowl itself. I'll go and hope a poke in it's nose (!) this weekend.
