Ford Fokus>> Electric equipment>> External illumination>> Headlight adjustment
If you for any reason do not have possibility to adjust a headlight in the service centre can take advantage of the following technique:
- Check up pressure in tyres and if necessary pump up them;
- The fuel tank should be filled at least on 3/4 or load into a luggage space cargo it is powerful 30 kg, corresponding to weight of half filled tank;
- Load a place of the driver the loading equal about 75 kg;
- Establish in front of the car, whenever possible, before a wall of dark colour. The distance between a forward part of the car and a wall should make precisely five metres;
- Some times press with effort to the car to compress suspension bracket springs in front and behind, and establish the switch of a corner of illumination in position 0;

Fig. 314. Adjustment of light of headlights on a wall

- Measure distance between the earth and the centre of both headlights. On a wall we put line S1 (fig. 314) at the height equal to the measured;
- On 5 sm below line S1 draw on a wall a parallel line (). This distance of an inclination of a passing light of headlights;
- Define the middle of the car and designate M.Oboznachte's line the centre of the car a point of intersection of lines of M and S1;
- Measure distance between the centre of the car and the central points of headlights. Transfer this size on adjusting line Е (at the left and on the right) from the centre of the car and designate these lines S2. Adjusting points for adjustment of headlights are points of intersection of lines Е and S2;
- If on your car antifog headlights are established, we repeat installation in the described sequence;

- Adjustment of headlights spend bolts at an open cowl (fig. 315);
- Include ignition and a passing light;
- Rotate an installation bolt on a vertical while the border of light and a passing light shade on the right side will not be crossed with an adjusting line;
- Rotate an installation bolt across, located on a headlight inside while the break of a light picture of a passing light precisely will not get on an adjusting point (a part of a diffused light to 15 % can lie above an adjusting line);
- After such adjustment of a passing light the headlight will correspond to norm.
