This page provides templates for beam deflectors to use when taking your car to a country where they drive on the wrong side of the road (or if you're LHD, the correct side of the road).

Use the templates to mask off your lights using suitable waterproof tape. Black sign-writers' self-adhesive vinyl makes an excellent masking material. The diagrams are self-explanatory even without the numbered labels.

Note: Right and Left, in this document, refer to the vehicle right and left as you are sitting in the vehicle looking forwards.

Mk2

The Mk2 instructions are reversible. The headlamp pictures are for a LHD vehicle, so look at your screen in a mirror for RHD. The templates are for nearside and offside, and should be flipped over as appropriate (striped side out on LHD, in on RHD).

Mk3 - Xenon (HID) headlamps only

  • Open bonnet.
  • Remove the front grille by twisting the 2 turnknobs.
  • Remove the headlamps from the car by lifting the 2 release levers and disconnecting the elec. connector.
  • Remove the rear cover from the lamp, by removing the 2 screws and pulling up the locking tab.
  • Turn the bulb alignment lever to the required position: Normal position "0" for the UK, or Travel position "T" for driving in continental Europe.
  • Replace the rear cover.
  • Refit the headlamps and front grille.
  • It is recommended to have the headlamp alignment checked after this procedure.

Alternatively, if you are not inclined to carry out this work, or not prepared to pay a garage to do so, headlamps can be masked using 'Eurolites' masking stickers available in motoring accessory shops.

Mk4

Without cornering lamps

X should be 100mm: adjust scaling as appropriate. The clear bit of the template is a guide; the shaded bit is the mask itself.
