Currently living in France, heading to the Netherlands later this month. Our rather battered LHD 2003 C3 failed its CT (Control Technique - French MOT) because of the back door handle coming off and the headlamps are out of adjustment.
The chap at the garage we took the car to said that he can't adjust the headlamps because there is something broken in both (we knew there was a problem with one, but had the second confirmed)
Model: C3 HDI
Mileage: 159 000 Km
So, does anyone have any suggestions for a quick fix to secure the headlamps at the correct adjustment, or whether we absolutely must bite the bullet and purchase new headlamp assemblies.
If we do need to purchase new assemblies, can anyone suggest either a European parts supplier, or a UK parts supplier where we can get the assemblies for LHD. The cheapest I have managed to find here in France are 140 Euros each. I have found some in the UK for 77 GBP (but they are for RHD).
With the move, the budget is tight, but we have to pass our CT before we leave France.
