That's the headlight self levelling, assuming you have xeons.
There are posts in the forum where people have made their own repairs.....

Here is the mot fail criteria-

4.1.5 Levelling devices
Make sure any manual headlamp levelling devices (driver controls) work by:

  • switching on the dipped beam headlamps
  • operating the manual levelling device
  • checking that the headlamp beams move up and down
  • returning the levelling device control to its original position
Vehicles with high intensity discharge (HID) or LED dipped beam headlamps may be fitted with a suspension or headlamp self-levelling system. If these systems have been fitted, they must work.

Sometimes it isn't easy to determine if the self-levelling systems work. In such cases you should give the benefit of the doubt.

You can identify HID headlamps from:

  • ‘DCR’ mark on the headlamp lens or body
  • an igniter module or inverter behind the headlamp
  • taking a few seconds to reach full intensity
  • a bluish tinge to the light
HID headlamps use high voltage. You should take care when inspecting these headlamps.

Defect Category
  1. Headlamp levelling device inoperative
Major
  1. Manual levelling device cannot be operated from the driver’s seat
Major

More of it's undeniable identification , replacement or fix .

We all know mots are notoriously inconsistent from station to station.

Confirmed it's the lamp leveler , a useless stealer parts dept hasn't got back to me after 2 days of calling and emailing the pic , didn't have a clue .

So I called another , straight away on the ball and knew , but would confirm later as system was slow , he called back in 3 mins , at over £120 , I don't think so .

Why can't some people do their jobs
:wallbash:
