Hi. All
Can anyone help
Me. I
Live in Portugal and have just Purchased a 2017 Kuga in July this year. It is the business model. I am about to travel to the U.K. on a visit and am finding it confusing as to headlight reflection. As you will know I have not got Zenon light but bulb light and not sure if they need to have reflectors fitted as it is a LHD drive and I need to set as RHD drive when on the UK. Can anyone advise the best solution as I am getting diffent advice on the subject.

I
Have ordered a reflector set but not sure if I need them as someone said if you got them it could cause heat problems to the Headlight and cause problems

For a definitive answer, why not ask a ford dealer or Ford customer service through Facebook?

Thanks Smokieno1

I have spoken to my Ford dealer but as he is only an agent here in Portugal he has no idea. I have thought sent an email to Ford Customer Relations and await a reply.

Thanks anyway

I don't think you do.  In the UK the beams have to kick up on the nearside, but as far as I know, in the rest of Europe the beams are flat.  So, a UK model needs to lose the kick-ups when driving on the right  but a flat beam should be OK in the UK.
