The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:

Some customers may comment when driving in the dark, the head lamp beam flutters vertically when driven on moderate to rough road surfaces. The adaptive forward lighting assembly with in the head lamp assembly allows some motion when the lamp experiences road impacts transmitted through the vehicle suspension and structure.

Recommendation/Instructions:

Inspect the lamp assembly to ensure it is properly fastened to the vehicle sub structure. Visually inspect the HID lamp assembly inside the head lamp assembly. It should be centered in the lamp opening. If no obvious issues are noted the lamp is most likely operating as intended.

Once verified, do not replace the headlamp assembly.
