EL XR Headlights

Gday.
I recently bought an EL XR6 - and while trying to adjust the headlights aim came to the conclusion that someone had previously re-wired them wrong, at the moment the stronger outer lights are the primary driving lights - the inner lights come on when high-beam is turned on.
I get the feeling that the weaker inner lights should be the main driving lights - cause these were the ones that could be easily adjusted (aimed).
Could someone tell me if this is right or wrong?

Re: EL XR Headlights

Thanks guys :) - any suggestions on how I can adjust the aim of the outer (projection) lights?, there is a screw that easily raises and lowers the inner lights - but I can't see anything obvious that will let me lower the outer lights aim.

Re: EL XR Headlights

They arnt that easy to get to.

Re: EL XR Headlights

Remove the blinker and you will gain easier access to the adjuster.
7mm is the adjuster size.Hope this helps.
