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.

The only adjustment that I found was up and down. There is a small white bolt about 1/2 way down the headlight assembly towards the outside edge with a serrated cap. It's the same for both headlights. I adjusted both of mine with no tools. One was a little tight the other was easy.

I have a 2000 Montero sport, and the adjustment screws are not as they appear. They are not phillips head screws. In fact they are black caps, about a half inch in diameter. One on each light, bot are towards the outside of the vehicle, and down towards the bottom of the lamp.

I turn the headlight adjutment screw but the light does not move up or down on the drivers side. Any idea what I can do so I can adjust it properly?


Might be rusted and seized up. Try spraying some WD40 and let it sit for a while. Then try turning screw again. Do this a few times, if still not able to adjust, recommend you remove head light assembly and replace the adjustment screw.

How do you adjust headlights??


The best way to do it is to park your car in front on a garage door, a building or put a piece of plywood in front. Whichever you use, park you car at least 10 feet away; so you can tell if you are going up, down or in the middle when adjusting.
  1. Remove the four screws that secure the headlight trim bezel to the grille.
  2. Remove the headlight trim bezel.
  3. Turn the headlight high beams on.
  4. Adjust the headlights. Use the adjustment screws located along the outboard side and the inboard lower corner of the headlight bucket. Adjust the headlights until the beams are centered directly on the wall.
  5. Replace the headlight trim bezel.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a headlight aiming problem - the low beams are aimed too high. I cannot find the vertical aiming adjustment screws to fix the problem. Can anyone tell me how to adjust the low...


Hi, i have no idea if this will help you or not, but, on the 1997 grand cherokee, if you look at the headlight itself, look to the outer edge, over the top ontop of the headlight there is a white allen key hole, not sure on the size, this, basically is the up and down adjuster for the headlight, sorry if it doesn't help but i've just had to adjust mine, and thats where it is, the one towards the radiator is the in and out, it pushes or pulls the headlight offcentre

Headlight adjustment


Most headlights have two adjustment screws. On on top and one on the side. These will be phillips head screws. Usually you would need to turn screw to the right to adjust right or up. Left for left or down.
