2007 Freestyle: there is a light colored 8mm nut adjuster with teeth on the fender side of the back of the housing for vertical aim. You can turn it by hand. Must be fine threads because it takes quite a few turns clockwise (screw persective) to raise the aim much.

Hello wwhampton,

open the hood, take a close look at your headlights, if it is a headlight assembly, there are two screws with big plastic heads on the back of the assembly, these are the adjusting screws. one for horizontal adjustment and the other one is for vertical adjustment.

if the headlight is a round or square ordinary bulb, the adjusting screws are located near the bulb itself, these are philips screws. one on the top and one on the side.

a suggestion; when adjusting headlights, face the car to a wall about 5 ft away and adjust the headlight.

tnx 4 using fixya.

How to install an alternator


Sorry but this does indeed have a tensioner pulley. I just replaced an alternator on my 2005 ford freestar, I did this without adjusting said pulley. There are 3 bolts on the alternator, install new alternator with only one bolt, put the belt over the alternator pulley, use a piece of metal to pry the alternator into place and drop in second bolts when in correct position. (I used a a piece of iron flatstock. Took 15 mins from start of project till the end.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2005 ford freestar with disc brakes


There is a cable that you adjust.
If you pull the boot down around the base of the hand brake you will find that there is a cable with a threaded rod, turn the nut on the rod clockwise to tighten the brake, the proper adjustment is to have the brake handle start to engage the park brake when it clicks three times, if you are unable to reach this then you may have to adjust the part brake shoes at rear, there is a small slot at the backing plate of the brake at each well, there is be a little oval rubber plug in it, remove the plug and look inside you will see a little wheel with teeth on it, move that wheel with a flat blade screwdriver in a downward clockwise direction, with the wheel off the ground and the park brake off, when you fell just a little drag on the wheel the adjustment is correct, then recheck park brake adjustment as outlined above

Are the head lights adjustable on the 2004 freestar ? Don't see any adjusters on them ?


  • Hi, I can help.
  • If you open the hood and look down onto the headlight assembly you sill see two hols on each headlight.
  • One hole adjusts the vertical and the other hole adjusts the horizontal.
  • You only need a small socket to make any adjustments.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

first, jack up the rear and adjust the brake shoes themselves, then you may have to adjust the e-brake cable underneath.. sometimes the adjustment is on the e-brake handle....

Headlight adjustment


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

2004 Ford Freestar Serpentine Belt


Some are actually spring loaded and others just have a slot that allows for adjustment. Either one of those types should be visibly different.
If the belt is not used for cam timing, the adjustment may be done with one of the accessory items such as AC compressor, the alternator or the power steering pump. In this case, the adjustable device will have one pivot bolt and another that goes through a slotted area to allow the device to 'swing' for adjustment.
The pivot bolt should be only a little loose so one can just barely move the adjustable device, while the adjustment bolt should be free while adjusting.  This may help not losing the adjustment after having set the belt tension correctly.
