Headlamp pod motor rest adjustment

Recommended Posts

I adjusted the pods, screwing out the rose jointed link ends according to the Service Notes (S3) so the pod was flush at its lowest point. When the motor was reconnected its rest position was out with the lamp raised 2cm. Is there a way of adjusting the headlamp pod motor rest / off position?

Many thanks,

Si

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

To clarify, the headlamp motor parks when the upstroke has commenced. Can the park position be altered by degrees and has anyone done this?

Thanks,

Si

I believe the operating arm fits on a spline...so you can vary the position by relocating it. Might be wrong, though...years since I looked there!! Other than that, the stop position is set by wipers on copper tracks on an internal pcb...this wears and the stop position becomes variable. Then it's time for some ingenuity.......! Can't help further as I've never delved in there.

On my S2 (and I understand they could different) my motors have a manual override should anything fail. I can wind the position up or down using those.

Thanks John, I'm going to hope the park position can be reset by slotting the crank arm back a spline or two.

Thanks Chris, our cars use the same TR7 headlamp motor. Sadly the manual override doesn't change the position at which the motor stops when the lights are raised or lowered electrically.
