Accurate adjustment of the headlight beam in Fiat Punto car is only possible using optical beam-setting equipment, and this work should therefore be carried out by a Fiat dealer or suitably-equipped workshop. Incorrectly adjusted headlamps can dazzle other drivers and cause accidents.
Certain models are equipped with a headlight aim adjustment system, operated by a switch located on the instrument panel. The system allows the aim of the headlights to be adjusted to compensate for the varying loads carried in the vehicle. The system should be positioned according to the load being carried in the vehicle as follows:
Position 0 Front seats occupied (1 or 2 people).
Position 1 Front and tear seats occupied (5 people).
Position 2 Front and rear seats occupied and luggage compartment loaded.
Position 3 Driver's seat occupied and luggage compartment fully-loaded.
