 LHD Lights  Empty LHD Lights

Post by Kezza louise Fri 22 Jan 2021 - 18:09

Hi there I am new to the forum and have moved to northern France taking my cherished white Wind Collection with me. Today I had my French MOT (controle technique) and failed  Crying or Very sad as my headlights do not conform due to being a RHD car. Does anyone know if I can adjust the headlights? I am a little loathe to change them as they are in lovely condition (I don't think I can get away with the sticker deflectors) but I think the colour is also an issue Shocked . The same problem occurs with the fog lights, are these adjustable? If I have to buy new clusters are they a DIY job to replace? I feel that my Wind could be expensive to register here in France but really keen to hang on to it so if anyone can help I would be extremely grateful  Laughing

Hello and welcome to the forum. I don't think you can adjust them as we did have a previous member that moved to France and had to replace them.

Hi Barbs

Thank you for your reply. I don't suppose the member is still on the site are they? I am having difficulty finding a supplier of Renault wind headlights here in France. You would think that as it is a French company it would be easy but non! I am currently looking at scrapyards.....

You could ask on this site. How is your French?

Wow thanks Barbs you have gone to a lot of trouble and I'm sure I'll be able to get the lights sorted with all this info. My French is not great but there is always google translate. Was a bit gutted when I failed the CT yesterday but looking a bit more hopeful today. BTW I am originally from Barnsley, a fellow yorkshire lass ! Laughing

Not surprised there was a problem with your headlights. Is it possible to just change bulbs rather than the whole light units? 

Just a thought:

Did it fail on fog lights as well? I thought these pointed straight ahead in LHD & RHD cars.

If fog lights are a problem one possible cost free answer; in the short term; is to remove them as I doubt that they are mandatory as many cars; particularly low spec models; don't have them.

 LHD Lights  Empty Condensation on inside of roof

Post by pineapple Sun 24 Jan 2021 - 20:10

Hi all,
When I got in my Wind today I noticed that my front window and inside of roof were both condensated. Never happened before not sure why this would happen. Has anyone else had this problem?

I must admit to never having had a condensation problem on the inside of the roof...but I have found that damp footwell mats after I've got in with wet shoes on rainy days does cause window misting overnight
