Beam deflectors Spanish car to UK

Postby olive » Thu Sep 24, 2015 11:34 am

If you take your car to the Uk, are stick on beam deflectors available on the ferries or Eurotunnel please?

I have green card cover with Direct Line. Does your breakdown cover extend to other countries?

I can't think of anything else I might need.

Hi olive,
Headlight beam deflectors are available on Brittany- Ferries.

You may have a leaver on the Headlights to switch beam direction. Check your Hand Book.

Thanks E. No lever, had a look when I replaced the bulbs with nightbreakers.

Just add to Enrique's post.. Brittany Ferries sell stick-on deflectors for both left-hand to right-hand and vice versa. The left-hand ones are in French. For non-French speakers that's not really a problem as the pack contains self evident diagrams for a whole range of cars.

You asked about Linea Directa breakdown cover in UK, from memory it does but might be best to check with them!

Spanish headlights only go up =main beam & down? dipped. They do not dip to the right like UK models dip to the left. This is why you see spaniards in the campo with fog lights on as they can't see the kerb or ditch . :lol:
I?ve never used anything on car or motorhome in the Uk & do a lot of night driving .Never had a complaint , been flashed , etc.
