Well done! I'm still looking on how to remove the NAR restrictions coding on our lights without throwing fault codes. On the MK7 is was fairly simple, but on these MK7.5 units not so much.

Bumping this up as I literally just had to do this after putting coilovers on and almost driving blind at night one night.....totally forgot to adjust headlight level. Also, reminder for 7.5, our up/down adjustment screw is the only one we see at the top of the headlights.

Hello! Sorry to revive this very old thread but I'm having an issue with my headlights.

My car was sandwiched last August and we were convinced it was dead. Turns out it looked much worse than it was and the car was fixed and has been driving great since. However, I have a problem with my high-beams since getting it back from the shop. I would take it back but they aren't super close to me so I was hoping I could adjust them myself.

My low beams are fine and seem level and adjusted. However, my high beams are completely wonky. The driver's side is pointing down. Is there a way to only adjust the high beams or do I need to go through the process outlined in this thread?

If you have the lighting package on the MK7.5 then that could mean that the headlight is twisted. it seems like the light is not pointing in the exact same direction, which would make sense if the low beam was in the correct spot but the high beam isn't. I am guessing the side with the high beam LED was pushed in and the side with the low beam remained almost unmoved. I there is probably a broken clip/bent bracket that holds the front portion of the light on.

We had a Mazda 3 that was repaired and I had to readjust the headlight manually, its still not perfect.

It might be just as easy as manually resetting the height, or you may have to totally calibrate it (height and direction L/R) , so the light fixture is sitting where it was before the accident.
