Default Help : Indica Xeta Headlamp adjustment

Hi,
I own a Indica Xeta GLG 2006. The headlamps needed to be replaced after an accident repair.
Somehow the TATA Motors people could not readjust the focus of the headlamps.
So at low beam with the leveller switch at the highest position the beams intersect at around 6-7 feet, and at high beam the beams hits ground at around 14 feet.

Need help on adjusting the the high beam to at least 20 ft.
I'll be grateful if any pictorials are included.

Default Make them fix it

That is the answer. Make them do their job. Address them assertively but politely, smile a lot, and keep after them. In any setlement, do not accept the work as finished until you are completely satisfied. The fender or the headlight assembly is misaligned or there are parts missing. Possibly a few good swats with a hammer are in order but make them do it, don't try it yourself.

Or, you could put taller tires in the front or a heavy weight in the back....

Thanks guys. Took it to the TATA motors workshop. Know what? The buggers had not fit the leveller motor probe into the socket of the hadlamp reflector the last time!

Headlamps great now. Thanks anyway.

Nope. I took the car to Garodia Distributors. They had actually changed the headlamps. Its so irritating to know that the mecahnic did not even care to do the assembling properly.
The mechanic who did it this time was pissed at the other guy also.
