Headlight Beam Adjustment

Recommended Posts


I've been told that it's possible to adjust the dip on 996 headlamps from right hand traffic to left hand traffic (and vice versa) by turning an adjuster screw - handy when taking a car on holiday from the UK over to continental Europe.

My question is can this also be done for the 987 series headlamps?

Thanks in anticipation.

You cannot adjust the dip but you can blank off the dip by moving an adjuster lever on the rear of the headlamp inside the rear cover. This will give you a flat beam pattern that does not have the angled kick up to the left side (In UK) or right hand side (in Europe). The headlamps are different units for Uk or European spec with the kick up to the left or right accordingly. They both have a neutral beam (flat) when set in TC position.
