    Astra afl problem

    Hi guys. First post on the forum so hello. I have a 2005 5 door astra h 2.0 turbo sri. It's got afl lights fitted from standard and has developed a problem with the lights. The lights are working but the annoying warning light is now flashing. I've used op com and it displays fault code b1461-00 which, after researching the web, seems to be the front left. I stripped the light out yesterday and all appears visually fine. Heres the question...... i know nothing about these lights. I know theres a ballast module, a balancing module, control module and range adjustment motor within the light. Before I start hacking the light to bits to replace the adjustment motor, does anyone know if the b1461-00 refers to a specific faulty module? If this has been asked before, i apologise. Any help appreciated as it's really frustrating not being able to diagnose the problem myself (and not very professional driving around with masking tape on the instrument cluster) thanks

    Its referring to the Left hand dynamic curve light.. Most probably stuck motor...

    there are only two error codes with 1461 I can see.. One is stepper motor circuit malfunction and the other is Light Stuck..

    hope this helps

    Thanks for that. I've looked at you tube and seen it's possible to replace the motor (hacking into the rear of the light) any ideas where I can buy a new 1? A few used on eBay but if I'm doing it I want to do it once.
