Dear Service Manager, and Service Technicians
Over the last 18 months, increased emphasis has been placed on the Inspection of vehicle lighting, in particular headlights. There have been a number of changes in the way their alignment is measured at the time of Warrant of Fitness Inspections, and what has come to our attention is that there is considerable confusion within our local area as to how to correctly check, and then set headlights so that they meet the revised criteria as set out in the VIRM.
We have had numerous occasions where we have failed a customers vehicle for mis-aligned headlights, only to find that on a re-check, they are still nowhere near where they should be! This of course leads to confrontations, and inevitable confusion in the mind of the customer as to who is correct paid my mechanic to set them, so they must be right is a view most commonly taken. We have had to refuse customers and send them back to their repairer, as well as placate them by correctly re-adjusting their lights for them in order to maintain goodwill.
As a National organisation, we operate under ISO 9000:2002 quality criteria and as such we are required to have our equipment calibrated at regular intervals. All 3 of our Beamsetters have been calibrated and certified as such by the manufacturer in November of 2005. We have set them up for ease of use in accordance with LTNZ agreed guidelines, and LTNZ agreed methods of checking vehicles whilst in-service.
I have enclosed a detailed set of notes we use on-site for internal training (for both the Hella Beam Setter and a light-board/wall for measurement and adjustment) in the hope that this may help clear up some of the confusion we come across each day.
Please call me for further clarification if you require.
