I am finding the dipped headlight beam on my 04 Cmax very disappointing. Indeed, I only feel safe driving at about 50mph on dipped beam. The full beam lights seem fine. Is there any way to 'lift' the lights in order to lengthen the beam? I could do this from inside of the car in my last motor. Am I missing something in my Cmax? Otherwise, what light bulb upgrade do people recommend that I buy to obtain a brighter light on the road, and where is the best place to buy? Thanks everyone.
There should be a small wheel by the light switch,as for bulbs I`ve put in Phillips as recommended by Autoexpress.I also changed main beam foe the same make.I think it`s H4 for dipped & H7 for main.Check their web site under products.
Thanks for that, both of you. I don't quite know how I missed the headlight adjuster now that you have pointed it out. Sometimes I think my brain ceases to function, and often for quite long periods nowadays.
Got a cmax few months back and have several issues to sort out.
I have a howling sound from the back (think the bearings are fine cause there is no clicking and the wheels are firm if you try to shake them),
Rear discs have signs of warping and are probably due for a change. Front...
Has anyone else had an issue with the engine cover rattling and wearing into power steering pipe behind drivers headlight? If you have how did you deal with it?
Thanks in advance

I have a mk1 2006 2ltr petrol automatic.
Can anyone tell me if there is a way to lock the doors when actually in it and driving, there is no button to push and manually lock them, nor do they auto lock when moving, the only lock/unlock I seem to have is on the remote fob.
We have a 2007 1.6tdci cmax.
I starts up first time and ticks over great but it’s incredibly noisy. It sounds like a tractor. We’ve checked timing and the obvious issues but we cannot find the problem. I think they call it diesel clatter.
any ideas would be great???
