Ford recall has ruined my car's LED headlights

Ford recently issued a recall on the LED headlights of the Ford Galaxy. My local small Ford service centre has done the work, but the LED lights are now darker and slower to react. I got in touch with Ford about this issue but no results so far. What further action can i take?

Between you and the dealer who supplied the car to sort it out. The supplier is normally liable, but since this is a safety related recall R/2016/113, Ford, via the dealer is legally compelled to fix it and to keep you on the road in a safe car until they do, or buy your car back.
