Jaguar S-Type HID Head Light May Point Toward the Ground

(11 reports)

A plastic component in the HID head light may fail and cause the head light to point toward the ground. The adjuster—which is very expensive—needs to be replaced to fix the problem.

I just found out that someone has written about a way to fix the self leveling headlight center adjusting post breaking problem ( Name on the net: Brutal) by inserting a screw in the plastic chrome adjuster under the radiator cover. See Jaguarforums.com -

Headlamps pointing very near in front of car. Jag dealer has stated over the telephone that this is a piece that is broken. I stated it would be coincidental that both have broken simultaneously but he says it is broken and the adjusting screws will not help. -
