Yes the level bubble should be centered, but the surface the car sits on must be very level, a concrete pad works well. No way to know about the adj. screw until you turn it and see what happens.

How do you adjust headlights?

Let a pro do it. The equipment used to adjust the headlites is expensive and the technician has to be trained to use it. The car must be on a near level floor . Once the aiming tools are set up then the adjustment screws are moved in or out .

Can I adjust my headlights down a bit? I keep getting people flashing at me at night. I checked it out and it looks like I am driving with high beams on.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Here's the procedure on how to adjust the headlight of your tacoma.

Find an appropriate area to align your lights. The ground should be almost perfectly, if not perfectly level. There should be a flat vertical wall against which you can shine your lights and clearly see the boundaries of the beams. There must also be enough room for you to park the Tacoma 25 feet back from this wall.
Prepare the vehicle for normal weight and height conditions. Take everything out of the Tacoma except for the items that stay in the vehicle at all times. Fill the gas tank and make sure the engine oil level is full. Fill all of the tires to the PSI you usually use. Finally, make sure there is someone sitting in the driver's seat during the testing and adjusting process.
When it is dark enough to see the headlight beams, park the Tacoma on level ground, 25 feet back from the wall, facing the wall head-on. Leave the engine running and prop open the hood.
Look at the backs of both headlight assemblies. Near the top center corner of each headlight, you'll find a small round cap. Remove these caps to expose 8mm screws. These screws control the horizontal alignment of the headlights.
Look at the backs of the headlights again, checking the bottom outside corners of the headlights. You'll see identical 8mm screws sticking out. These screws control the vertical alignment of the headlights.
Turn on the headlights and shine the beams against the wall.
Use a measuring tape to measure the distance between the ground and the center horizontal line in the plastic lenses of the headlights.
Go to the wall and measure the distance between the ground and the center horizontal line's reflection in the beams of light. If the line on either side is higher on the wall than it is on the Tacoma, the light on that side must be adjusted to point down. If the line is lower on the wall on either side, the light on that side must be adjusted to point up.
Use a 8mm socket wrench to adjust the vertical alignment screws on the headlights, measuring the horizontal lines on the wall as necessary, until the center lines of both beams are exactly as high as they are on the Tacoma.
Use a measuring tape to measure the distance between the two vertical lines in the center of each headlight lens.
Go to the wall and measure the distance between the two vertical center lines' reflections in the beams of light. If they are father apart than they are on the Tacoma, the headlights need to be adjusted toward the center of the vehicle. If they are too close together, the headlights need to be adjusted toward the outside corners of the vehicle.
Use the 8mm socket wrench to adjust the horizontal alignment screws on both headlights, measuring the vertical lines on the wall as needed, until the distance between the lines on the wall is equal to the distance between the lines on the lenses.
Replace the caps on the top headlight adjustment screws and close the hood.

All the best!

I need to replace and then adjust the headlights on my 2000 Chrysler 300M. How do I replace the headlights, then adjust them.

Park your vehicle on level ground with the headlights near a garage door or wall. A good distance is 2-3 feet away from the wall or door. The location must be perfectly level and flat at a distance of 10 to 25 feet away from the door or wall.
Switch on the low headlight beams and mark the horizontal and vertical centerlines of each headlight beams on the wall using masking tape. This will mark the center of each beam with a +. The marking will tell you where exactly the headlight beams should be centered from a distance.

Move the vehicle back about 10 to 25 feet away from the garage door or the wall.

Keep the headlights on the low beam setting.
Use the markings you made on the wall or garage door to, check where the light shines and see if the centerlines still match up with the masking tape marks. If the centerlines of the two beams do not align with the tape marks, you can adjust one or both sides as needed.

Make the necessary adjustments with the lights still on while watching the light beams on the wall and your marks.
Turning the top adjusting screws in a clockwise direction will raise the beam while counterclockwise turn will lower it.

Turning the side adjuster screws will adjust the lights to the left or right.

Continue the adjustments until the center of the light beams are aligned with the tape marks. Then adjust the vertical alignment of both beams slightly below the marks on the wall. This will assure that the lights are tilted slightly downward so they won’t blind approaching motorist.

The will align bot lights, the high and low sine both are connected to the same headlight!!

    • Check the tire pressures and correct as necessary. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04 .
    • The vehicle must be unloaded with the exception of a tool kit and spare tire. The fuel tank should be half full.
    • Bounce the vehicle several times both front and rear or roll it a few meters so that the suspension settles.

Headlight beam is too high

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)

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.

Aiming headlights

if you don't see little bubble levels near the headlight under the hood then you must have them aligned with an optical aimer, if you do have the bubble guages then park the car on a level pad and set the bubbles to center with the little adjusting screws near them.
