The button on the right of the dial is for the dash lights.
Figured it out. Open the hood and look at the back of the light housing. You'll find an odd 12mm hex bolt/#2 Phillips over a serrated washer. The hex bolt houses the Phillips head. (See pics).
Somewhere I read that the LEDs on the PHEV EX Premium provide good illumination straight ahead but poor for side illumination / curves. Whats your opinion on the HIDs vs LED headlights? ThanksI drove our 2018 Niro PHEV with the LED headlights for about 30 minutes the other night, and got flashed three times. I will be adjusting them lower this weekend. On a side-note, we had another 2018 Niro PHEV that was totaled a couple months ago, and it had HID headlights that didn't have an issue.
LED on my PHEV are great! and it's not that bad on the side.and curves! Much better than the normal projector's headlight that i had last year on my old HEV EX trimSomewhere I read that the LEDs on the PHEV EX Premium provide good illumination straight ahead but poor for side illumination / curves.

Yep, agreed. Even on low the LEDs have great coverage to the sides. With the high beams they light up everything.LED on my PHEV are great! and it's not that bad on the side.and curves! Much better than the normal projector's headlight that i had last year on my old HEV EX trim
I think the Golf and Niro are pretty comparable in terms of fit an finish. Both the VW and the Kia were basically fully loaded with all the options. The interior of the Niro is really nice and I really like the EX Premium tech, which is a bit of step up compared to the Golf. No shock as it's also 8 years newer.Hey jmurphEV I'm just curious... I will be going from a 2017 Golf. How does your Niro compare to your Golf in terms of fit and finish, NVH (noise, vibration, harshness), suspension compliance to rough road surfaces, and ambient noise at 70 mph on highway.
We've had this same problem from day one with ours. I took it back to the dealer and they said it was not something that they could change and that it met factory standards. I have not looked at user adjustment capability yet, but after reading this, I will now. If you get this reply, let me know if you resolved the issue successfully.Led headlights
We are having the same problem. Drove 2019 PHEV EX PREM 45 miles home from dealer after sunset and was flashed at least 6 times, several times receiving very aggressive flashing. Next day at dusk, 3 mile drive home, same thing.
A. It's not safe for oncoming drivers.
B. Encourages road rage. Not safe for anyone.
I'm not clear from responses here if this is a do it yourself adjustment or a dealer must do adjustment.
If you've done it yourself would you be kind enough to post a tutorial?
I have other issues with this car but this is a big one.
The US version does have LED headlights.The PHEV EX Preimium does not have LED headlights. That is the car I have, I have not been flashed, except when I forgot my high beams on. You can definitely see a line where the light is cast, and I could easily imagine a headlight being out of alignment and casting into oncoming traffic.
Edit: should have noticed the second page of comments...
The dealer will do it for free if you are still within 12mo/12,000mi since purchase. It would be considered a service adjustment covered under their service adjustment warranty.I'm not clear from responses here if this is a do it yourself adjustment or a dealer must do adjustment.
