    Everything changed last April and now things that were not important are a fail such as headlight washers not working on HID bulb cars.

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to download ElsaWin but I'm not having any luck. I have a replacement used Headlamp Leveling Actuator arriving tomorrow. Would anybody be able to tell me just the basic procedure, if you have access to Elsawin manual - can it just be pulled out ( it looks like it should) or does it involve removal of the headlight. Any help would be appreciated. I don't need a step by step guide if it's complex - just the basics. OSF Golf GT - standard headlamps

    You won't get elsa to work unless you run it on a virtual machine such as Oracle

    I checked with my MOT man and as long as the adjuster wheel is at zero and the lights correctly aligned, a none functioning manual headlight dipping adjuster is not an MOT failure.

    As per the info on post 9 "the testers book" it would appear to be a grey area here. Some digging revealed if a manual beam leveller is fitted some would prefer it to be working but wouldn't confirm it would be a fail if not working.
    Others appear to be sticking to the recommendation in the "testers book" with the more fussy using a non functioning adjustment wheel as an initial "black mark" against the vehicle should some other albeit minor issue be discovered.
    Obviously the beams have to be set correctly full stop but if the adjustment wheel wasn't functioning for whatever reason then it would be irrelevant if it was checked and seen to be "set to zero".

    Don't forget young man you would be well within your rights to take a sabbatical for two and a half years to complete your home improvements and Mrs C's protracted bathroom issues whilst still being paid by the government.
    Don't worry too much about your customers waiting on promised jobs to be done. They will just have to be patient.

    An extension??
    What do mean? A sturdy extension to a BSP wrench - which would certainly be a lot easier to achieve.

    Keith is going to be very upset with all this innocent frivolity and we shall be in trouble.
