Just wondering if anyone has seen a spec for the LED headlights on the SZ5?. I am interested in seeing the beam pattern, width, length and also lumens would be good. This is for comparison to help me decide whether to go for additional Driving or Spot lamps?

Yes, that just covers adjustment of the Halogen headlights. It actually says the LED headlights don't need adjusting, which is wrong. Mine were set too high and I was getting lots of angry flashes in the dark. Dealer knocked them down slightly and has all been good since.

Can you not adjust them from the cabin?

No, the LED ones are self levelling, so the adjuster you get with the Halogen lights doesn't exist with the LED's.

Soeley. Any idea how they made the adjustment? I have the same problem but the Jimny is on a tiny Greek island with no dealer.

Two white clicky screws, up/down - left/right.
Position the car two or three feet from a clean white wall and twiddle the screws.
Don't forget to count the clicks so you can return to your starting point if your going in the wrong direction.

Thank you Chris. Just to double check - these are LED lights?

That's right, photo is the LED headlight. Self levelling just returns the shell to its default setting. It's this default setting that you are changing. When you start fiddling it will all make sense.

Thank you Chris very helpful - the Greek Suzuki dealer told me there was no adjustment. I'm in Greece next week-end and will find myself a wall and level ground! James

Thanks CC for stepping in, been busy today.

It seems a lot of dealers are telling people they are not adjustable just because they are self levelling :(

Thank you Soeley, I'll let you and CC know how I get on. The biggest challenge is going to be finding the level ground and wall!
