Had a bulb blow last night, so thought I'd get the endoscope out to find out where the 'levers' to switch between UK and symmetrical beam for driving in Europe were.

The lever itself is directly underneath the bulb housing but further forward towards the front of the car. It is a bit awkward to move, especially if you have sausage fingers, but I managed it!

The lever moves by about 1cm and makes you think, "Hmmm, that hasn't actually done anything".

I wrote the lever directions on the back of the bulb cap so I don't forget when I go to mainland Europe later this year. Of course, I don't know if mine were set to UK to start with, but I have to assume they were.
