    Default R10 Cibie head lights

    Ok, really dumb question here. There's two positions you can have the head light globes fitted in the R10 head lights - one for RH drive market & other for LH drive market but the note on the back of the head light doesn't say LH drive or RH drive but LH traffic or RH traffic. So which is which ? Is LH traffic for RH drive because you travel on the LH side of the road ?

    Can't remember the answer now but years ago had the same problem and so shone them on a wall and marked the centre of the beam and then tried the opposite way and got an answer that way.

    Ah, thanks guys. A globe blew on Clive the other night so I replaced the old 40/45w globes with a bit more up to date 55/60w globes and noticed the different positions and thought I better check

    Looking from the front of the headlight you need to rotate the globe anticlockwise for RHD cars. This lifts the light pattern on the kerb side and lowers it on the traffic side.

    I thought something wasn't right, the beam angles up on the wrong side at the moment
