Hope this helps.

I bought the bulbs and changed them at HASS during service and the technician said that there is no adjustments as such everything is fixed.

Hi Prass,

It is possible to adjust the focus of the light, try with another good electric technician in and around your place.

I got mine done the same way, Hyundai A.S.C. said that it is not possible to adjust the beam but when I inquired lot many people suggested to try out and I was able to get the focus done.

In the i20, there are two screws ,one each for horizontal and vertical alignment. So adjustment is possible .Just check if those 2 screws are present in the fog lamp assembly.You can visit a HASS and ask them to show you the fog lamp from their spares.

It the Verna the fogs can be adjusted for vertical beam by turning a flower head screw just behind the fog. To access the screw you have to go under the bumper and turn it till you are satisfied with the throw. Make sure you park your on a flat surface facing a blank wall some 6 feet away. Note that raising the fog too high will not help and you will end up loosing out on the quality of light. Ideally the fog should cover a distance of not more than 12 to 15 feet max. For me the perfect setting was 8 feet. Beyond that the headlights take over. What I did was to install HIDs in fogs and at that height they do not bother the oncoming traffic. The change was drastic, obviously.

Thanks mate. It was a simple DIY, the flower screw could be turned by hand to get to the desired beam level. Did you change just the bulbs to HIDs? can you share the details/cost pls.

After doing the beam adjustment, I am overall satisfied with stock setup and no plans to change to HIDs for now.
