SOURCE: How do I adjust the headlights on a 2002 buick Century?

  1. Step 1 Purchase a replacement bulb from an auto parts department or auto parts store. The bulb number is 4157NAK. You also can check the parts book or ask store employee for assistance.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of the vehicle. The hood release handle is located under the dash on the left side of the vehicle. Once you discharge it, you must free the second hood release under the hood of the vehicle in the center. Move it to the right and lift the hood.
  3. Step 3 Locate two headlamp retainers (clamps) holding the headlamp in place. Pull up to remove them to discharge the tabs on the assembly.
  4. Step 4 Detach the power to the headlamp. Now you can easily remove the assembly out of its position.
  5. Step 5 Take off the rubber cover located in back of the turn signal light. This will allow access to the bulb socket.
  6. Step 6 Turn the light socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly.
  7. Step 7 Remove the old bulb by holding the bottom of it and pulling it gently up. Replace with new bulb.
  8. Step 8 Once you have replaced the bulb, put the light socket back in the assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.
  9. Step 9 Replace the rubber covering on the back of the headlamp assembly.
  10. Step 10 Put the headlamp assembly back in place by sliding it in the slot and attach the power supply.
  11. Step 11 Replace the retainer clamps to hold the headlight assembly in place and close the hood of the vehicle.

Each Headlight should have 2 adjusters directly behind where the lamp assy is fitted inside the engine bay. 1 will screw in or out to adjust the headlight left to right, the other adjusts up or down.

How do i adjust my headlights on a 1998 buick century custom? their facing down instead of straight ahead


sounds as if they were installed improperly. take them out and replace with wires pointing downward.
If the whole assemble is pointing down it is probably an adjuster screw
that is detached from the casing.

Headlights stay on too long after engine is off


been working on the same issue for a week. fixed it last night after research and trouble shooting. The head lights are controlled by the head light dial/knob on your dash on the left side of your steering wheel. With the knob pushed in, if you shut down your car, the lights should automatically shut off as well. Mine didnt so what I did was i turned off my car, disconnected the positive battery terminal located inside a fist sized red box on the right side of your engine. Then I took off the dash panels to get to the actual connection on the headlight switch/dial/knob. I disconnected it and put it all back together. It fixed the problem.It worked for me, maybe theres an easier or faster way of fixing it but this worked. Good luck.

How to Adjust a Mercedes' Headlights

In the U.S. the type, adjustments, and illumination factors of all automobile lighting devices are regulated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108. The headlights must function and be adjusted correctly. Your high beams must disperse their beams straight forward and low beams down and to the right while safely providing illumination without too much or too little glare. It is wise to check the headlight adjustment on your Mercedes at least every year. Doing it yourself will save you time and money. It will also make driving safer for you and others you may meet on the road at night. All it takes is time, some basic tools and a little patience.

Things You'll Need
  • ratchet set
  • 1/4-inch screwdriver, at least 8 inches long
  • flashlight (if needed)
Show More Instructions
    • 1 Open the hood and prop it up.
    • 2 Remove components if necessary to allow access to the left/right and up/down adjustment knobs. They are on top of the rear side of the headlight. The upper knob adjusts the beam to the left and right. The lower knob controls up/down adjustments.
    • 3 Park with the passenger side of the car parallel to a solid fence or wall and about four feet from it. When there is dim light or darkness, turn on the lights and use your screwdriver to adjust the up/down knob on the passenger-side headlight until the light beam is parallel to the ground (you can see the beam of light against the surface of the wall).
    • 4 Turn the car so that it faces the wall approximately one car length away. Adjust the up/down knob on the driver-side headlight until it is at the same level as the passenger side headlight. Then adjust both sides until the small groove on top of the beam cutoff is directly in front of the light.
    • 5 Reinstall any components that you removed. Close the hood.
Tips & Warnings
  • This is method is generic for Mercedes models. Some may differ, as there are many models out there.

on the back of the headlights, there are to circle knobs, probably grey, if you reach down there, then you can turn them with your fingers, that will adjust the up and down of your headlight, there is another knob right beside that one or on the other end of the headlight and that will adjust the left and right
