Headlight range control 2
Using the electrical headlight range control, 2 you can adjust the headlight range to the load level that is being carried in the vehicle.

The headlights can only be adjusted when the dipped beam is switched on.

To lower the beam, turn the thumb wheel down 2  from the basic setting 0.

Dynamic headlight range control
