SOURCE: headlight adjustment

If you look at the front of the headlight, there are actually a couple of screws around the edge. These are your adjustment screws.

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.

Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Mustang 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.

How do I replace or adjust the neutral safety switch.


Before you adjust switches, get the car on a lift and be sure the shift linkage is tight. If the linkage is worn, the car may not be fully in park even though the lever and indicator look like the car is in park.

The switch is on the transmission. You should be able to see it when the car is on the lift.

My brake light switch is broken


Its on the brake pedel you need to remove a clip from the end of the pin that slides through the pedel and the brake switch then the pin then the connecter . Install in reverse order .
However before removeing anything you should look to see if there is an adjustment for the switch . You see the brake light olny comes on if you push on the pedel most have adjustments on them because its an on demand thing so the light could be on if your not pushing the pedel or it could not come if you are pushing the pedel or it could not come on at all pushing or not pushing to pedel .You need to figure witch condution you actully have .

Brake lights stay all time


Most likely problem is the brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment. The switch is located under the dash on the arm lever of the brake pedal. When the pedal is at rest, the arm presses the switch in and turns off the lights. If the switch gets loose, broken, or out of adjustment, it may not close and allow the lights to stay on constantly.

Adjust headlight beam


The Sunfire 03 to 05 has one adjustment screw at the top. The back of the headlight has a tab that has to fit into a hole in the radiator support make sure it is in there or the headlight will be loose. I found after breaking the two adjustment screw plastic brackets. Remove the parking light brace from the radiator support one screw and as you carefully slide the headlamp in while pulling out the parking light. Hook the back of the bracket on the radiator support. If you break the plastic adjustment bracket (it twists in like a headlight bulb, but you can't buy it. Thank you GM) remove the broken piece of plastic and the rubber washer and spread it with plastic epoxy sets in 5 min and full hard in 24 hours, but hard enough in one hour and you can now beat it to death and it won't break why didn't GM make it permanent?

A6 very low dipped beam


This may be caused by the adjuster on the back of the headlight. There are adjuster that can be turned using a phillips screw driver. The adjusters then turn a bevel gear and that turns the shaft that adjusts the up and down, left and right on the light. Sometimes these gears get damaged or broken. If the gear is broken you will not be able to adjust the alignment of the light. You can purchase the enclosure on line but they are very expensive. I hope you get lucky and just need to have them adjusted

Timing marks and adjustment


The timing marks are located on the crank and cams,to get to them the fan,water pump,timing cover,and a few other things must be removed.

If you are just wanting to adjust the timing,(And the timing chains are not broken or jumped)You will do this at the distributor and you will need a timing light to do it correctly.

Head light adjustment 2004 optima


This is how to adjust 04 Optima headlights:

For all descriptions, assume that you are standing BEHIND the light assembly.

On the back of the headlight assembly you will see the bulb cover (round cover with tabs) stamped "OPEN" and an arrow showing which direction to turn to remove. Look toward the 8 o'clock position for driver lamp, 4 o'clock for passenger lamp of this cap. Partially obscured by the sheet metal you will see a black screw 3/4 exposed on the headlight assembly. It is at the edge of the sheet metal and very difficult to see, but it,s there. You may need to remove the assembly to get a better look. If needed, see below for lamp assembly removal.

How to remove the headlight: There are two 10mm bolts holding the assembly in place. One is above the headlight and the other one is between the headlight and the high beam light. Unplug the two harnesses that hook into the headlight, if needed, and it is ready to be removed the car. Gently work it out of position.

Take a Phillips screwdriver and turn the black screw - it adjusts the light vertically. Turn it counter-clockwise to make the light go up and clockwise to adjust down. Its as easy once you find the screw.
