Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Masking or switching over headlights for driving abroad (travel mode)

Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual / Lights and vision / Lights / Masking or switching over headlights for driving abroad (travel mode)

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

If you have to drive a right-hand drive vehicle in a left-hand drive country, or vice versa, the asymmetric dipped beam headlights may dazzle oncoming traffic. Therefore, the headlights must be masked or switched over if you are driving abroad.

The alignment of the headlights can, depending on the vehicle, be adjusted with the help of the Travel mode menu option in the Settings menu in the instrument cluster . When travel mode is switched on, the indicator lamp flashes after the ignition is switched on for approximately 5 seconds each time.

In vehicles in which the headlights cannot be adjusted via the menu, stickers should be applied to certain parts of the headlight lenses, or the headlights should be adjusted by a qualified workshop. A qualified workshop can provide you with further information. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

Stickers may only be used on the headlights for a limited period. Please contact a qualified workshop for a permanent alteration. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.
