get  yourself a T-15 Torx driver.  Park your car on _level_ ground aiming
the lights at a wall. pop open the dummy reflector that is between the fog
and blinker, I use a butter knife and or a screwdriver to open it. once
open you will see the adjustment screw.  I put a old blanket over my
headlights and hood so I could more clearly see where the cut off on the
fogs is, then I would just lift  the blanket to compare with the low beams.
Test drive when done. Use as you feel necessary....;)

When I got both my VW's from the dealer I could see the fog light cut off
in the distant trees!! that was higH!

Mine are a bit high...can anyone tell me how to adjust them?  And yes
they make it easier to see deer....I've had two $2000 collisions with
Bambi, thank you in the 34 years I've been driving.

First: are the driving/fog lights adjustable?
I had them on the other night and they point to the ground
I did pull out the dummy lens and I did not see anything that would adjust
The Archive lists it can be done, and I need a T-15 Torx Driver???what is
If you pull the dummy lens you should see the head of the adjustment screw
right next to the fog light assembly, mine has a white washer around it.  A
Torx driver is the tool used to fasten Torx screws/bolts. It is similar to
a 6 sided Allen  or "hex" wrench, but the Torx is multipointed like a 6pt
star.  Any place that good screwdrivers, tools or auto supplies  should
have a T-15 (Hex wrenches can be used on Torx too in a pinch)

You must have missed the thread about this topic last week. The conensus
seems to be that you should park the car in level ground about 20 feet
from a wall and turn the foglights on. If the lights' cutoff is any
higher than the lights themselves, they're aimed too high. They should
be aimed at the ground in front of the car, not up at the trees.

I'm not sure what you mean about the color changing.

Nice choice of car, BTW. =3D8^>

    Does anyone have an general rule of thumb for how high/low to aim
the stock A3 foglights?  Which position makes the color change more,
high or low?  Thanx for the info.... (BTW, I looked in the library and
it only had a thing on how to adjust it.)
