Headlight range control

Depending on what level it is set to, the headlight range control   adjusts the position of the light cones in the headlights according to the load that the vehicle is carrying. This gives the driver the best visibility possible and means that oncoming traffic will not be dazzled  .

The headlights can only be adjusted when the dipped beam headlights are switched on.

To adjust, turn control   to:
Setting Vehicle load levela)
Front seats occupied and luggage compartment empty.

2 All seats occupied and luggage compartment fully loaded. Towing a trailer with a low drawbar load.
3 Only the driver seat occupied and luggage compartment fully loaded. Towing a trailer with maximum drawbar load.
