Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hi Shantal please continue i would like a answer to it . Like i said they agree there is lines that shoot left to right but because its been through its MOT they are not willing to change the glass front in case they still have the same problem. I know other people have had the same problem seen it on other sites but there as never been a answer or reason why. But believe me it is really annoying when driving more so if you are on the motorway or on a narrow road .Thanks Colin

Hello and welcome to our web page here my name isXXXXX a Certified Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try today to answer your question.you can't change that is how is set by VW you can request to be changed on your own request what direction but you will have re adjust when you go for mot testing again . Many people have asked question like your but no so to say good fix other than you request the change and tell them what direction you like to be moved. Some shop will do it .also installing non VW headlights seems to fix the issue many people reported also .

Hi Enes' thanks for your help. Although set by VW' is it intended to serve a purpose or is it a fault ? Thanks again Colin

Expert:  Enes replied 2 years ago.
VW never admited that is fault they say it passes uk and mot testing so there is nothing out there on paper written for that to say it is problem. Or not .but lot poeople have asked and complain about that issue so far no good fix out there to say is correct repair .
