Thank you for purchasing our Travel Spot Headlamp Adaptors (also packaged as Halfords / AA / RAC, etc.) Please fit as follows:
Open the packaging and remove the card + the folded ‘fitting information’ leaflet. Now follow the flow chart below:
Universal Fitting Information
Firstly, you will need to gain access to a ‘Headlamp Alignment’ machine. These can be found at most Vehicle Dealers or Servicing garages and at ALL MOT testing garages. Position your vehicle in front of the alignment machine with the Headlamps switched onto ‘Dipped Beam’ (i.e. No blue ‘Full Beam’ light illuminated on you dashboard).
The headlamps will throw a light pattern in the machine similar to the one shown in the diagram below (Areas ‘A’ + ‘B’).
It is the ‘raised’ area marked ‘A’ on the diagram which is used to illuminate road signs etc, when driving on the left in the UK. However, this area will shine into oncoming driver’s eyes when driving on the right in Europe, and therefore needs to be adapted to prevent dazzle. This can be achieved as follows:
Without removing the backing paper, take hold of the ‘tail’ end of an adaptor and offer the ‘round’ end up to the Headlamp in various positions (see folded leaflet for typical positions Diagrams 1 - 8 are the most commonly used). The aim is to achieve a reasonable dimming of the ‘dazzle causing Area’ A, without compromising the overall brightness of the headlamp’s beam ‘hotspot’ (Area ‘B’). By a process of experimentation it will be possible to find the optimum position for the Adaptor.
NOTE: Ideally, the engine should be left running during this process to ensure maximum beam clarity.
Once the fitting position has been identified, the adaptors should be applied using the ‘fitting Instructions’ section of your leaflet.
NOTE: Generally, the Adaptor will fit in the same position (NOT the opposite position) on each of the two Headlamps. For example, if the Adaptor fits in the bottom left corner of the Driver’s side Headlamp, it will also fit in the bottom left corner of the Passenger’s side headlamp.
We trust the above information will allow you to successfully apply your Eurolites, but please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.

Counterfeit Headlamp Adaptors -
There have recently appeared on eBay a number of cheap counterfeit copy adaptors that look like genuine ‘Eurolites’. These copies are proving dangerous because:
1. They use poor quality adhesive so they easily fall off your headlights leaving you driving illegally.
2. They are not made from the same high quality material and therefore result in a loss of headlamp beam intensity.
3. They come with incorrect fitting information so may not fit your car correctly leaving you driving illegally.
For your own safety, if you buy from an eBay auction please make sure the adaptors you receive are genuine, as follows:-
a) Eurolites should arrive in a sealed ‘retail’ display pack see image below.
b) The adhesive ‘backing paper’ on the reverse of the adaptors should be white and printed with a red or blue ‘removal warning’ see image below.
c) If the adaptors you buy:-
1) Arrive in a simple plastic bag containing just 2 adaptors and an instruction sheet
2) Have un-printed yellowy-brown adhesive ‘backing paper’ on the reverse.
They are counterfeit… so please:
Send them back to the seller and demand a refund.
Report the offending auction to eBay, and
Report the seller to your local Trading Standards.
Please remember, Headlamp Adaptors are a ‘Safety Critical’ car lighting product and we all benefit from the product being genuine and working correctly.
