SOURCE: Can't find headlight adjustment screws

They 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.


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)

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.

SOURCE: opel astra headlight adjustment

two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks

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.

SOURCE: Need headlight adjustment

Your best bet is to go to a good collision shop, they will have the necessary tools and equipment to set the adjustments correctly. They charge a nominal fee, usually about 20 bucks, but sometimes they will do it for free.

Headlamp replacement. cannot figure out how to remove headlight housing to replace bulbs


With the hood open, looking down at the light assembly, there are two screws (black) that go straight down.
They may look like adjustement screws. They are long and have a 5mm hex head. One is in the middle between the headlights and the other is at the end near the fender.
Remove those two screws and the headlight assembly pulls straight out.
They are not adjustment screws so if there is no need to adjust the lights after reinstalling (unless they were not adjusted properly from the begining)

Where are adjustment screws on my 2002 dodge intrepid headlight?


On top of the housing of the headlight, you will see some small holes. With the use of a flashlight, look through these holes and you will see some torqux screws (T-20 or T-25 star bit). First loosen the headlight housing. With the use of the stars bits, adjust the headlight as needed and then re-tigthen the housing. You're done.
