LHD -> RHD headlights

I have a 04 Mondeo with XENON lights. The lights are set for LHD as I live in Germany. How do I set them for RHD for a trip to the UK?

Gday mate, im not sure about changing them over. I never even knew that lights were setup for LH or RHD? Would it make any difference? Dont they just shine straight down the road no matter what side of it your driving on?

Re: LHD -> RHD headlights

you need to ge the RHD Mondeo headlights as the lens is cut to project toward the left side of the road

BlueAU, the difference is that when on low beam the lights dip to the appropriate side.

To answer the question, for a temporary fix you can put a sticker over part of the headlight lens to block some of the light. I can't help you with exactly what part needs covering but no doubt you will be able to find out, there may be kits on sale in whatever Autobarn is called over there.
