Ds5 Axles sensors.

Post by Buttwad »

Does anyone have a picture or can point me to where I would find the headlight adjustor sensors on the axle.
Is there just one, or one each side?
Need to hopefully get the automatic headlight adjuster failure resolved for the mot as this is a failure
It's a 2012 ds5 Dsport 163.

Many thanks.

There is a front and rear body height sensor fitted to each axle. The type depends on whether you have hybrid traction or not and the type of Discharge or LED + Discharge lighting fitted.

The headlamp adjustment unit is separate and contained somewhere near one of the headlamps.

I’d advise getting it properly looked at as depending on your issue, there could be multiple causes. You don’t want to remove the body height correctors as these are in precise positions about the axle and will require height correct positioning and adjustment procedures if removed.
