Gent, I did an atempt to adjust the headlights.

I usually measure the height of the bulbs from the ground, park the car about 5 meters from a wall, measure from the ground up, and stick some tape on the wall a few cm lower as the bulbs, this usually goes well.
Now I think the lights in the Outback are a bit different as what I'm used to, I always drive old cars..
When I adjust the light, the image on the wall looks sort of ok, not too high, I think. But when I turn on the high beam it is pointing to the ground..

Is the high beam adjustable sepparetly, I can't find anything, or do the lights of the Outback need to be adjusted real high?
This doesn't look right, the image on the wall looks to high..

Anyone who has an idea?

Thanks. :)

Sounds like the high-beam bulbs are not installed correctly. They're not adjustable separately, and should cast most of their light above the low-beam cutoff.

Just had a look, you were right!
The bulbs of the low beam was in the wrong way, the image on the wall is completely different, a nice beam on the wall instead of big spot.
The high beam is indeed just under the low beam.

Thanks
