Sure this has been mentioned before but i'll ask anyway:)

My car has LHD lights fitted and as it is coming up to MOT time i'm looking for an easy way to change the beam pattern to RHD spec. I know that older Mercedes and Bmws it was bulit into the headlight ie flip a lever,adjust bulb holder location.

Is it as simple as this?

Switch ignition and lights off !! Open the dipped beam headlight cover, and look for a small lever, carefully move it in the opposite direction.

Your dipped beam normally looks like this in RHD cars

When the levers are moved the beam will either be horizontal or as the picture. i.e. kick up 15 degrees to the left

Use a torch, it might be hard to see right inside. Failing that your car may not have the lever

Every man and there dog said there was a lever.

I'll use the sticky beam deflectors this year, spent enough over the last wee while without buying headlights.
