Title: HEADLAMP WITH AN IMPROVED LIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a headlamp for a vehicle comprising a housing (10), a low beam light unit (11) and at least one high beam light unit (12) both being received in the housing (10) as well as a headlight range adjusting unit (13) for adjusting the range of the low beam by tilting the low beam light unit (11) about a low beam tilting axis (14). Further, the headlamp comprises a mechanical coupling unit (16) coupling the low beam light unit (11) to the high beam light unit (12) such that the high beam light unit (12) is tilted about a high beam tilting axis (15) simultaneously with the low beam light unit (11) being tilted about the low beam tilting axis (14). According to the invention, the mechanical coupling unit (16) comprises a coupling element (17), a first coupling link (18) and a second coupling link (19), wherein the first coupling link (18) is arranged between the low beam light unit (11) and the coupling element (17) and the second coupling link (19) is arranged between the high beam light unit (12) and the coupling element (17).
