Front spotlight adjusters

Post by frlrubett » Tue Feb 02, 2021 9:08 pm

This has been covered a lot but a number of the links have expired so just want to double check.

Purchased the wrong headlight adjusters screws, they fit well for my main lights but for the smaller inner ones they dont.

Someone suggested these

Is this correct, I seem to remember I need four of them for each fitting, but these are packs of three??

3 is enough, one is fixxed, one is used to adjust height and one is used to adjust left or right beam projection.
If you use four you can not adjust.
