Headlights

ADJUSTING THE HEADLIGHT BEAM

The correct positioning of the headlight beams is very important for the comfort and safety, not only of the person driving the vehicle but also all other road users.

This is also covered by a specific law.

To ensure you and other drivers have the best visibility conditions when traveling with the headlights on, the headlights must be set properly.

Have the headlight positioning checked at a Fiat Dealership and adjusted if necessary.

SLANT COMPENSATION

The vehicle is fitted with an electrical device for correcting the headlight slant. The device can be operated with ignition key at MAR and dipped beams on.

When the vehicle is loaded, it slopes backwards. This means that the headlight beam rises. In this case, it is necessary to return it to the correct position.

Proceed as follows:

hold button B-fig. 139 pressed to increase by one position (e.g.: 0➟1, 1➟2, 2➟3);

hold button A pressed to decrease by one position (e.g.: 3➟2, 2➟1, 1➟0).

Display C shows the positions during the adjustment.

Correct positions as a function of the load

0 - one or two occupants in the front seats.

3 - driver + maximum permissible load stowed in boot.

HEADLIGHT ADJUSTMENT ABROAD Check the headlight beam position every time you change the load to be carried.
