Mine goes at least one and half car lenght, but my concern is that the passenger is little longer than the driver side. I can see the cut-off but I cannot level it. I tried re-aiming - no luck. Dealers does`nt want to explore into coz it is not factory.

That's by design and I think it's a DOT spec on headlamps. I don't believe it's easy to mod that without tampering with the lens design. The reason for this is that they want you to blind other vehicles on the road (oncomming or directly ahead of you), and since you drive on the right, seeing your right curb is essential for avoiding mishaps that may come your way at night. It's a safetyy thing.
You're welcome. Interestingly enough, I went through my auto books and there's actally
a European spec and a DOT spec on the pattern, height, length, width and a whole lot of stuff on headlights - amazing. It turns out that to eliminate the pattern, you'll have to replace the reflector, and of course, after you do that you'll get arrested immediately for breaking some DOT code!!!
Dear BW friends:
Just wondering if any of you have had success on an ML / w163 of replacing a Front Cat (right) with a universal model.
I see them commonly available.
I'm trying to do this affordably. It's a 2002 ML500 NON-California model.
When my ML was stranded roadside with the Oil...
I'll start from the beginning. I pulled in my driveway from a 4hr trip. My son moved my car and the brakeline busted but I didn't know it. I went to leave and started backing slowly out of my driveway, applied my brakes to put the car in drive, I had no brakes. So scared without thinking I put...
So I followed everybody's advice (thanks all!). Finally got the ignition switch on separately from the connector, second time around. First time I put both on together, but my key didnt turn. So, I did it how you guys said, separately. Took 3 different guys and 2 days!! Key turned with new lock...
I'm hoping to pull any of you who've had an ML radiator fail where the side tank (plastic) to (aluminum) core seam seal is ?
I've got a modest leak that I believe is there. All hoses are tight and a drip forms at very bottom of Drivers side radiator edge.
If I just relieve pressure...
