On cars, block headlights are used that combine low / high beam lamps, side lights and direction indicators. The headlights use the so-called transparent glass optics.

The headlight cover is completely transparent and does not have a scattering function. It is made of plastic, more transparent than glass, and much lighter than a glass cover.

A layer of protective varnish protects it from minor damage (scratches).

There are no color filters in the direction indicators; instead, lamps with glass of the corresponding color are used.

The dipped and main beam headlights are switched on by the left steering column switch for outdoor lighting using relays located in the mounting block in the engine compartment.

Control voltage is applied to the high beam relay coils from the ambient light switch when it is in the headlights on position.

Regardless of the position of the outdoor light switch, you can turn on the high beam headlights briefly by moving the switch lever towards you.


Fog lights

Fog lights are installed on the car at the bottom of the front bumper.

They can only be turned on when the outdoor lighting is on.


Checking and adjusting the headlights

Check and adjust the headlights on an equipped vehicle (with a fully filled fuel tank, a set of tools and a spare wheel).

In the described way, using a marked screen, only headlights with halogen incandescent lamps can be adjusted.

To adjust the headlights with gas discharge lamps, contact a specialized service that has optical stands.

You will need the key "on 8".

Pre-check and, if necessary, bring the air pressure in the tires to normal.

Park the vehicle perpendicular to a smooth wall (e.g. in a garage) at a distance of 3 m.

Place a weight of 75 kg on the driver"s seat.

Mark the screen on the wall as shown. The longitudinal plane of symmetry of the car must pass along line 0 on the screen.

Vertical lines 1 and 2 are equidistant from line 0.

The distance "A" between lines 1 and 2 must be equal to the distance between the centers of the dipped beam lamps. Rock the car from the side so that the suspension springs self-adjust.

On the vehicle, measure the height of the headlight centers from the ground. This will be the distance h on the screen.

Set the headlight dimmer control on the instrument panel to the correct position for the single driver vehicle.

Turn on the low beam.

It is recommended to adjust the direction of the light spot for each headlight individually. Cover the second headlight with an opaque material during adjustment.

This is how the headlight adjustment screws are located horizontally "A" and vertically "B". Shown on the left headlight removed from the vehicle.

Open the hood and, by turning the adjusting screw "A", adjust (if the location of the light spots does not match the figure) the position on the screen of the light spot for each headlight horizontally and by turning the adjusting screw B, vertically.

The headlights are considered adjusted when the upper boundaries of the left parts of the light spots coincide with line 4, and the vertical lines 1 and 2 pass through the points E1 and E2 of the intersection of the horizontal and inclined sections of the light spots.

Rear lights

The rear lights include direction indicators, position lights, brake lights, a fog light lamp (in the left lamp) and a reversing lamp (in the right lamp).

An additional brake light is installed at the top of the rear window.

The fog light in the tail light can only be turned on with the switch if the low beam is on.

When you turn off the headlights, the rear fog light turns off automatically.

direction indicators

Right or left turn indicators are switched on by the left steering column switch.

The direction indicators turn off manually or automatically when the steering wheel is turned back. In alarm mode, the alarm switch turns on all direction indicators.

Headlight electric corrector

The cars are equipped with an electric headlight corrector, which allows you to change the direction of the headlight beam in a vertical plane, depending on the load of the car.

If the headlights suddenly began to burn dimly, and when the turn signal is turned on, the side light lamp starts flashing, restore the contact of the "mass" wire with the body.
