From 24 March 2016, the way headlamp aim is measured on the MOT test is changing. The new testing standards will emphasise the importance of correct alignment and stress that it shouldn’t be just a quick check. It’s been trialled with the help of VTS council member volunteers with the results verified by the Vehicle Safety Research Centre at Loughborough University. Headlamp aim consistently tops the MOT compliance survey as one of the most likely items to be assessed incorrectly by testers. In other words, the most complained about as a test failure. These new changes will look to reduce errors and increase test consistency. The changes will slightly widen the tolerance band for European ‘E’ beams with headlamp centres up to 850mm. There will also be the requirement to test the ‘image break’ point for all European 'E' beams. https://mattersoftesting.blog.gov.uk/the-mot-headlamp-aim-test-is-changing/
Hi All, Any JAG experts around? Had to replace a blown headlamp bulb at the weekend in pouring rain, which I did, but found it near on impossible to replace the rear cover back onto the unit...... unless I strip the damn engine down One bailarm clip is positioned so that it is impossible to re-fit Now have ingress of water into headlamp so will need to completely remove and try to dry it out and clean it Is there an easy way to replace the damn bulb rear cover without stripping all the skin off my hand????? Note: Drivers side bulb unit - and is it similar on the passenger side? Thanks G
