With your hood poped look on the framing above the head lights. there are about 2, 1 inch wholes above each headlight. If you look down in them you will see torx shaped studs. One turns up and down the other turns from side to side.

Low beam toyota corolla


There will be no adjustment for low beam as the headlight assy. adjusts for both beams. Adjust lights on high beam from a distance of about 3 ft(1meter) The center of the beam to be slightly below center height of the light and slightly to the left (AUS) or right (USA). Face the car to a wall at night is best.

Headlights adjustment


Open the hood and look for adjusting screws right behind the headlights. Park the car on a level surface facing a wall or garage door so you can see the height of the beams of light. Adjust them up or down, or left or right and make sure they are both the same height. Drive the car at night to check your adustment, then change it if you need to.

Headlight adjustment


Okay, This depends on your State laws, because some States require the headlight aiming to be performed at Inspection time.
There are small hex shaped adjustment screws around your headlamps. They require very small sockets of perhaps 1/16 th of an inch and barely fit next to the headlamp housing. At most there will be 1 for up and down and 1 for left and right so two adjustments for each lamp housing.

Unless the housing has 2 separate independently moving compartments for each low and high beam you are stuck with the setup of the low beams. This means you have to adjust the low beams and the high beams are not independently adjustable.

If you find that each lamp is independent, then disconnect the low beam bulbs and adjust the high beams at night or in a garage and put some tape or marks for a level line for a pattern. Then adjust the beams with the drivers side slightly towards the center of the car and the passengers side to the right of the car.

This is similar to how the low beams are set. You can then raise the beams up to be higher on the passengers side for better visibility. Opinions on this vary.

Myself, I set my passenger beam to hit the curb or right lane marker when I drive on a multilane highway. This way the right side of my car is projecting a beam that keeps me centered in my lane by just keeping my passenger light on the lane marker. It works good in fog and around curves.

The State of Texas was one State which checked headlamp alignment with every annual Vehicle Inpection. The idea is to keep from blinding oncoming motorists.

There were some Magazines which evaluated the lighting in new cars as part of their consumer testing. Some of the Oldsmobiles, I believe, were cited for poor visibility and a term called "cutoff" was used to describe the lack of *********** by the headlight beams.

Now the low beams adjust to the same pattern. For some reason I remember having the low beams at 42 inches height and at a distance of 25 feet. These would be the marks you would try for on the garage wall.

You might want to browse about the magazine articles. You can try the new improved bulbs to help too!

I have a 2003 kia spectra. Can the headlights be adjusted. On low and high beams they seem to be set to low. I feel they should shine out futher to be able to see more while driving at night


the headlights can be adjusted but you can't adjust the high & low beam separately, you can only adjust the light as a unit unless you have a separate high & low beam lights ( twin lights) ......hope this helps......cheers.

How do i adjust my headlights?


  • Always adjust lights with optical headlight aimer VAS 5107, using detailed aiming procedure and specifications
  • Low and high beams are adjusted simultaneously.

Left headlight (adjustment screws for right headlight are mirror image):
1 - Lateral adjustment 2 - Height adjustment
  • Access adjustment screws through hole in lock carrier (Phillips head or socket head).
  • Turn the adjusting screws for lateral adjustment -1- and height adjustment -2- until the correct setting is achieved.
NOTE: Where equipped, ensure equal movement/function of headlights during automatic headlight range adjustment.

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer


A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

My headlights need adjusting on my 2009 Ford Focus. Then point too low and have no night vision


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.
