Just curious if anyone has any insight on how you adjust the aim of your headlights....?

There isn't any sort of special technique. Just park your car in front of a flat vertical surface and tweak them until the beam pattern in parallel with the ground. That's the basic Cliff Note's concept.

The direction should be stamped into the metal near where you're turning the screw. It'll tell you which way to turn for up and down.

clockwise like screwing in a screw will aim the headlight down.

It's between the high beam and low beam bulbs as show in iVtecMmm's pic.

Look at the top of the headlights while the hood is open. It should have U/D with arrows stamped into the black plastic near where you insert the screw driver to turn it.

now im really confused. the only thing i see is this thing here, the one that says "Do not adjust"



well i adjust it anyway to see if maybe it was the right thing... and nothing happens! it looks to be the only thing that can adjust on the whole headlight! What am I doing wrong?

:jigglemad

now im angry

(p.s. happy 500th post to me!)

the helms manual is WRONG.

the top(left side of the pic) one is to adjust up/down. you don't adjust the bottom one.
