What is the proper adjustment/
Head light adjusters are part of the head light assembly and yes high and low beam are adjusted as one unit normally. Proper adjustment is done on a machine, at an equipped facility.
low beam and high beam is in the one setting unless you have separate headlights
procedure is to place the car on level ground 3 feet from a wall that reflects the head light
draw a cross on the wall at the height of the center of head light lens
switch on the head lights (high beam)and you will see the center beam of high beam on the wall
using the screws at the back of the assembly adjust that spot to be pointing slightly to the left if rh drive ot left if lh drive and about 1 inch below the line that you drew on the wall
when you have that correct , it will put the low beam in the correct legal position
if the rear of the vehicle is sitting down , trailer of caravan on , the the head lights have to still be adjusted to legal setting
If you look at the top of the head light assembly with the hood open just past the top rubber seal, you will see an alan head adjustor screw. This will adjust the low beam light up and down. the high beams are fixed. I would suggest shining your headlights on to a wall or garage door to get them to the same hight you need.
I am assuming that the design was not changed from my 2005 updander to your 2008. I had to adjust mine while on a road trip. We had a lot of people and stuff in my vehicle which made the headlights shine higher than normal. I was getting a lot of on commig traffic flashing. I was able to ajust them down fairly easy with those adjustor screws. Hope this helps.
Adjustment are located on the sides of the headlight assembly. One adjusts up and down (side) and one adjusts side to side (back) park about 20 feet away from a wall and adjust to center Your beams should be about 6"-8" lower than the headlights and about 6" inside the diameter of the lights
hi kate the vertical and the horizontal(meaning left/right) can be adjusted there are two screw adjusters if you check on top of crossmember that is above radiator/head lamps there is a hole above each head light and below tese holes you will see x/head screws one for each h/lights vertical up/down adjustment screw down raises beam and no need to adjust horizontal however ? this adjustment is best done using correct equipment and if not done correctly ? cars next mot which checking h/lights is part of test i would advise having adjst ment checked 1st b4 altering hope this helps ? best wishes from the uk
Yes you can. There is an adjustment screw at the top of each head lamp and you just turn them out or counter clockwise and the beam will come down. You may also have to adjust them side to side also. There is an adjustment screw as well.
with your hood poped look on the framing above the head lights. there are about 2, 1 inch wholes above each headlight. If you look down in them you will see torx shaped studs. One turns up and down the other turns from side to side.
