whats the deal with adjusting the headlight angle??

i thought all you did was turn those little screws, but that dosent seem to do anything...

my passanger headlight is shining way too far to the right and the drivers side is pointed to the ground...


how do you change them, and which screw does what? if you even use those screws at all?

theres two studs. the bottom one angles the beam up and down, and the corner one adjusts left and right. get a small socket (either 4.5mm or 5.5mm) and a 1/4" drive ratchet, and start turning the studs. it takes a while to get the beams adjusted right. you need to watch the beams on the wall to see which way they are traveling while turning the studs.

I also had trouble with mine. There is a plastic sleeve that the adjustment screws thread into and then that sleeve is supposed to be held fast by the metal clips you see. One of my plastic sleeves was frozen to the adjustment screw so when you turned it with a wrench, the whole thing just turned inside the metal retainer. I managed to get the sleeve loose from the adjustment screw and was then able to properly adjust my headlights. Hope this helps.

ha, im only replying to this thread cuz of you

As for aiming them just listen to small mike and you should be fine.

you can even just use like a 4mm socket on that stud to turn it to aim.
turn the stud on the passeger side clockwise to aim it back center, and turn the stud clockwise on the drivers side to bring it back up.
