Hope someone can advise.
I would like to remove and adjust the headlamps on my LDV Convoy (as well as clean front covers without cracking the plastic). I thought the information would be in the LDV manual but I can't find the information anywhere.
Many thanks...

Have you looked behind the lens in the engine compartment. there might be 3 or 4 screws (2 at the top) holding the lens in place. You will have to disconnect the wiring before taking the lens out which should just be a clip connector. I would mark the position of the lens in the engine bay before removing so you can line it up correctly when putting it back.

hey, many thanks for your reply; also any idea on removing the perspex covers? Are they clip on or screwed on from the inside. I don't want to assume the former in case I crack them.

Go to Youtube and ask your question, you will be surprised how many peeps video upload that sort of stuff. Usually works for me.

Thanks; i actually have the manual but i can't see a mention of the headlamps anywhere. Hence asking here where another LDV Convoy owner might give some feedback.
