On my 2003 ford focus, the passenger headlight went out, had it replaced and now the light is aiming much higher than the driver's side. How can I adjust it.

Make sure the bulb was put in correctly and sitting flat as bulb replacement does not require head light adjustment.Check head light bulb before attempting to adjust

How to replace a 2001 ford focus headlight switch assembly


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

Turn the engine off, open the hood, and disconnect the negative battery cable (--) with your pliers.



Locate the power distribution box against the firewall on the driver's side of the engine compartment. Flip up the latch and remove the plastic cover.



Determine which headlight fuse you want to replace. The 2001 Ford Focus uses four headlight fuses--one for each headlight. Fuse number 16 is for the passenger side low beam; fuse number 17 is for the driver's side low beam. Fuse number 26 is for the passenger side high beam; fuse number 27 is for the driver's side high beam.



Grasp the fuse with your fingers and pull it straight out of its mount. Insert the new fuse in its place. Replace the plastic cover and reconnect the negative battery cable.

Where do you recharge the A/C on a 2003 Ford Focus?


On the accumulator is the low pressure port. It is in the fender in front of the tire on the passenger side. Look up from the bottom behind the fender.

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.

Adjustment of headlights...how to


There is an adjustment screw for the headlight located on the headlight housing. You should just have to turn it clockwise (I believe it requires an allen wrench) and that will raise the light beam higher. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thanks and enjoy,

Headlight problem


first off if you paid to have it replaced then i would take it back to them for the adjustment if not there will be some sort of adjustment screws on the whole lamp assembly not sure exactly where on a focus but if you are persistant you will find them. then find a spot to park car close to a wall so you can see the lights projected on the wall and adjust to the driver side level
