So I finally got around to try and adjust the height of the light.
And my god, what a pain that was...
The evening/night that I went to adjust it became a total mess.
I had set up everything, and looked in the handbook even, just in case you know.
I followed the book and started to adjust the screw. And I turned, and turned, and turned, and turned.... And the bloody light on the wall wouldn't change it's height. So I got frustrated and desided to take of the back of the housing, the black plastic, just to get a better look, maybe something is broken.
So I look around and I notise a secound adjuster screw on the other side, exactly the same as the one on the left side, as depictured in the book.
So okei, there is two of them, gotta be why I'm not able to make any change on the height then. So I start screwing on this adjuster bolt too. And I turned, and turned, and turned, you get where I'm going with this..
Slightly more frustrated now...
So I inspect the whole light assembly, to get a overview of how it's actually pieced together.
And I notise two screws, one on each side, that sits in the center of the housing, and those who holds the whole glass, bulb, etc, in place.
So okei, losen those two then, and then try again to adjust it's height.
And bloody freaking he*l you guys, one of those screws was placed there by satan himself...! Whatever I did, it would not nudge... I even broke my screwdriver.. The handle was just spinning...
So I had to get out the one under the seat of the Rebel.
And guess what..? The freaking tip of that screwdriver broke off!
So I gave up that night... I had had enough.
Tried again the next night, and brought with me every single screwdriver I could find in the house.
I won in the end! With the loss of some screwdrivers, but I won! Partially stripped the head on the screw too..
So when I finally managed to losen both of them, THEN I was able to adjust it's height without hassle!
And then I think back at the handbook again, with it's "how to do" manual.. WHAT A PIECE OF BULLSH*T BOOK!!
Why in the world would they not include PROPER guiding in it?! It is the bloody manual for crying out loud, it's supposed to contain the nesseseary information to do sertain things yourself!
Just to recap a little, for those who should be so unfortunate to have to deal with this themselves too;
1 - Remove the back cover on the headlight (2 bolts, one on each side "down bellow" on it, uses the same size allen key as the one that is on the bike, same one you remove the seat with)
2 - Loosen the two screws that sits on each side at the center of the housing (use a phillips screwdriver (never understood why you guy use such a name for it, sounds.. dumb. Here we just call them by what they can screw, so a flat head screwdriver, star head screwdriver, etc))
3 - Adjust the adjuster bolts to change the height of the light (Be aware here, since there is two of them. You don't want one of them to be adjusted more than the other. Safe option is to screw both all the way out (down) and then turn them both equally times in again until you're at the desired height of the light)
4- Back trace everything, remember to tighten firmly to avoid screws comming lose while driving.
I meant to get pictures taken of the prosess, but it was rather dark, so yeah..
But I could get some taken now, if someone want/need them.
