Mike, thanks for the response

Headlight leveling requires motors to move the headlight itself.
Much more than just a switch.

The motors are included, what I am not certain is how the switch communicate to the motors, and how those motors connect to the lamp

Think you'll need to register to see the first wiring diagram.

Yeah, saw that

But I read ( can't find it now so I pinged Mike ) that the switch goes straight to the headlamp as the motor is inside, so I was wondering how the switch connects to them

I am sure on the modern 2004 and up ( see new fascia comment on your link ) there has to be a harness in there from factory and wondering how the application will work to older models as I do not believe there is another piece of equipment between the switch and the headlamp 3 prongs

Fused power and ground to both headlight motors, and the switch. The switch positions vary the resistance in the blue wire according to the schematic shown in the link. Based on the schematic there is nothing between the switch and the blue wire.

I have found this , there is a harness from the Headlamp motor to the main harness and similar behind the fascia on the newer models

I'm racking my brain about this leveling switch and where to install it in a '95 NAS ST. It's pretty obtuse. Is it even necessary after initial install of the lamps? It could be fun to manage the array, but is it likely to be used even 1% of the time? Ideas anyone? Cigarette lighter is all I can come up with barring putting a hole in my lower dash. My left side aux light switches are full and I don't have a/c, so those are out. Could it be disassembled to just the switch, and not the positive point markers, so that it could sit relatively flush?

My German cars run euro lights with adjusters, and ran them for years without the adjusters operational. Only time I see the adjusters as necessary is if the back of the vehicle is lowered due to weight and you want to avoid blinding oncoming traffic. Both of my cars have self leveling suspension, so I never need the adjusters. Since the Defender is so softly sprung, seems like the adjuster is good thing to have. Hide the switch under the dash, you will not use if very often.

Would someone post light pattern and brightness comparing before and after, please?
Or maybe one old lamp and other new?
Thanks!
