Hi Eric taking the headlights out isn’t really a option when you arrive on the continent so it looks like it’s another trip, to Halfords for a beam bender kit.

Hello Norman, It just flattens the beam so you can do it in the UK with no problems when it comes to dazzling oncoming drivers in our home counties.... I would give it a go. All the Very Best, Eric.

So instead of the beam 'flicking up on the left in the UK (RHD) to light the curbside, you simply get a flat beam Eric?

That would explain why the EU lamps are a different part number as the beam on LHD would flick up on the right side to light the curb and as long as the beam is flat, which Citroen claim it is, then either unit can pass a UK MOT.

Hi thanks for the info, I found the left/right markings they are in the right hand plastic trim for the drivers side headlight and i was looking at the passenger side headlight so that’s sorted thanks to everyone for their input.

Hello Dave,

Yes that is the case.

Hello Norman,

Enjoy your pending trip....

All the Very Best,

Eric.
