I just lowered my car last night and now the headlights are aimed low. My car is equipped with bi-xenons. Anyone have any tips on how to get them to adjust? Do I have to manually adjust them at the headlight or can I use vagcom?

TIA

just talked to my dealer about htis today, there should be a screw above the headlight assembly that when turned, adjusts the whole assembly. also i think there is a different screw that adjusts just the projector ballast, i have yet to do this, im gonna try in a little bit

Double Check Installation

No adjustments should be necessary. Take a quick look under your car on the driver side behind the front wheel. Make sure the leveling control arm for the headlights was reattached to the sensor. If not, your headlights will be stuck in the lowest position.:thumbup:

As far as I know the CC only has a a leveling device in the rear. I've looked all over the front after taking the wheels off and didn't find one.

This is the joint that comes apart when the suspension is removed. This picture was taken right behind my driver side front wheel with the wheel turned hard right.



Not sure if yours is in the same place or not but I am quite sure that you do have one. If so, double check that it is installed correctly as this caused my headlights to aim low. Hope this helps.

I really appreciate you trying to help me.

I installed my new wheels today and double checked and there definately isn't one where yours is. Last night I decided to manually align them and use vagcom to re-learn the new position. They aren't aligned perfectly, but at least I can see further than 20ft. now. I'll re-align them the right way during the week when I have more time.
