A bulb not seated correctly will often fail beam pattern , H7  :-\
cloudy lenses can be polished in situ
if self levelling Xeon then is the sensor on the wishbone functional. :-\

I would imagine broken adjusters, unless the lenses are very cloudy.

If it is the lenses, a standard 3M headlight polishing kit will do the job (or even sanding by hand, but then needs effort, LOL).

Broken adjusters are hugely common on Omegas. In the old days, somebody made aluminium ones which were superb, but no longer available.  I think some resin ones are available on ebay?  Fitting requires disassembly of headlight, which is fiddly, and needs popping in the oven.  Mrs TheBoy and I became quite a dab hand at doing them ;D

MFL CDX will be halogen, unless retro fitted (and I dont know any retrofits that bother with the levelling ;))

Personally I found the resin ones to be poor, I bought these and fitted them, no worse than the originals and should last the life of the car now, certainly been OK in one of mine for the last 3 years.

Iíve a pair of Xenon headlights complete which a 1999 CDX would probably have.

Is yours a PFL omega ?
