MG MGF Technical - MG TF LHD headlights

Hi all
We have just bought a mgtf from the UK and need to put on French plates. Looking at the headlights I cant see any markings you normally find on headlights to differentiate LHD to RHD. How do the LHD lights differ to the RHD?
All advise appreciated


Hi Tim,

The headlight lenses direct the beam in the correct direction.

There is a switch at the back the RHD headlight units which, if moved to the LHD position will alter the beam so that it will not dazzle oncoming drivers. This is not a long term solution.

You will have to replace the exisitng units with LHD ones.
