SOURCE: adjusting headlights

Park about 20 feet away from a smooth wall, facing directly at it. Put a piece of tape on the wall about 26-28" off the ground. Turn on the lights and see where they hit the wall - you want the beams to hit the wall centered on the tape. If they're not centered on the tape, open the hood and look at the top of the headlights, along the back of them. At the inboard and outboard corners, you'll see adjustment screws. One of them will aim the light up and down, and the other will aim it left to right (not sure which is which on the Windstar, but on many cars the lateral adjustment is the inboard screw, and the outboard screw adjusts beam height). Just turn the screws until the light height is centered on the tape, then take a test drive and try it out. If it's still too low, turn them up farther. That's all there is to it.

I noticed this is 6 months old so I don't know if you have figured it out yet but heres an answer for you. On the back of the headlights there are 3 plastic heads, they turn but spray some wd40 or something on them first. You might have to take the headlights assembly out to get a good bite on them.

SOURCE: can't adjust 2004 Ford Expedition headlight

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.

This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

SOURCE: Adjust (aim) headlights on a 1990 Ford Taurus

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.

Any mechanic can aim your headlights for you , but I would consider buying new bulbs. Even if your car has halogens , they do become less bright over time.
Some of the new bulbs on the market will light up 2 to 3 times as far as older halogens.

How to adjust headlights for a 2008 dodge ram 1500


Extra lights should be the same height as the main lights of the vehicle. They must go out when you dip the head lights so you will need a relay for this to happen. They must also be independently switched so that they can be turned off Adjustment ---the center of the beam should be do higher than main lights at 3 feet from the lights and should point slightly to the passenger side of the road

I Have an Audi a4 Quatro 2004 model. Adjust Low Beams?


There are two adjustment points (screws). For example left headlight: you will see one point near the end of left wing, at bottom side through a wing hole. This is for vertical plane headlight beam adjustment (up-down). Another one point is against water radiator side. This is for horizontal plane headlight beam adjustment (left-right).

How to set auto headlights


Ford Requires a special tool to adjust headlights, you can buy from ford or Mac or snap-on tools. Car must be level and you need it to be slightly dark outside so you can see what your doing. Adjust driver head light on low beam, as you are turning adjustment screw turn the screw for raising the head light and raise the head light up or down till it is 30 feet in front of you. you can take steps and measure it this way which would be 10 steps or ten yards on a normal person that is 5.8ins tall. then adjust the side adjuster so that when looking at the head light spot on the ground it is pointing to the passenger car side about one foot away from straight on. Meaning if you were going down the highway that the light would point down and slightly to the right not on the center road painted lines. Next adjust the passenger side to where it is the same height as the driver side, then hit your high beams. it should be aimed so that the lights do not shine into on com-ming drivers eyes. If you have a garage or a building that you can get thirty feet away and the car is level it will make it easier for you to see what your adjusting. Afterwords you may have to make a minor adjustment to both lights. I like to set them so that the passenger is slightly higher and a little to the right so you can see going down the road at night an avoid or see a deer or person to the right side of the road. Some states requires that a certified light mechanic to do this so be sure you are not voilating any laws when doing this. Thanks for using fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.

How do I adjust headlights on a Chrysler town and country 1996


Look around the edge of the headlight. You may have to pull a cover off from around the headlight if you cannot see them. Normally there are 2 screws that can be adjusted with a cross tip screwdriver. One screw on top of the light, and on on the side. Loosen the top screw to adjust down, tighten the screw to adjust up. If the side screw on the light is towards the inside, then loosen the screw to adjust towards the outside of the road and tighten it to adjust the light towards the inside of the road. If the screw is towards the outside of the light, then it is reversed. tighten to bring the light towards the edge of the road and loosen to bring the light towards the inside of the road. Hope this helps!
