Headlight adjustment question

Recommended Posts

Guys I know it's been discussed tons of time in so many forums but I had a few specific questions which have not been answered.

I have a 2006 base cayenne with xenon for low beam and a halogen for high beam.

Read the manual also.

Questions as follows:

1) the manual says bi-xenon and additional high beam- why is it called bi xenon? There is only one xenon and bi would mean 2? Also why is the high beam called additional high beam?

2) is it possible to adjust the xenon and high beam separately? The manual doesn't say it??

3) also it shows a screwdriver being inserted....and it's a funny looking screwdriver, it's like curved?? Where do I find it? It's not in my toolkit.

4) then it explains the procedure of parking 24.6 feet away but it doesn't tell whether we switch on dipped beam with the high beam or just the dipped beam.

5) also there is no mention of clockwise or counterclockwise movement of screwdriver does what? I mean does clockwise lower the beam or vice versa??

Any help would be appreciated.

1. It is just as you say "The name “Bi-Xenon” is a reference to the fact that gas discharge lamp technology is also used in the high-beam headlights." Hence Bi Xenon.

2. No, the headlights are set at a base level and the car's automatic headlight beam adjustment (AHBA) takes over from there. It does automatic corrections for load, inclines, vehicle pitch, braking or acceleration.

3. Not sure - I thought it was part of the tool kit.

4. It does not matter you setting maximum height - and both should go above the maximum height (so not to blind oncoming traffic).

5. Sorry I can not remember which raise or lowers - just turn it till you see the beam move. If you don't feel comfortable doing this then consider having a shop do it.
