best to let a garage adjust head lights because you need equipment to adjust headlights, because you could blind other drivers on coming traffic on the opposite lane causing accident. best let garage adjust headlights wont charge you much.

How do i adjust the headlights on a 2001 ford ranger


There should be two screws to adjust vertically/horizontally. both headlight has those. before begining the adjustment if there is a leveling motor adjust it to 0 position.

you will need allen wrench( 4mm). i guess it is a special type for ford ranger headlight becasue screws are hard to reach. when you have proper tool you will turn screws to find correct pattern on wall.(some needs only philips screw driver)

to do this park car in front of a nice flat wall and have 10 meter distance between. direction car should be exactly perpendicular to wall surface. measure the height of hte center of head lights.
record this. mark same line on wall at same height. then find center point of your car and mark it on wall. mesaure distance between two headlight (center to center). mark same distances on the line on wall.

keep in mind that when you turn screws center of beams will move. you need to adjust 10 cm lower than your line and you will match the direction on each headlight. here is a drawing. ( if you have 8 meter of distance you will have 8 cm difference on your line and beam centers)

How do you adjust a 1994 Jeep grand cherokee laradeo headlights?


There are two adjustment screws at the top of each headlight. They are visible when the hood is up. Use an Allen wrench (hex) of the proper size to turn one screw to adjust the height and the other for lateral adjustment.
It is best to position the vehicle on a level surface a facing a wall or garage door. The vehicle can be about 8 feet from the wall during adjustment.
Adjust the light left/right and up/down with those adjustment screws. The head lights should point somewhat straight ahead at the same height as the headlight itself and the same distance apart.
After adjustment, park the car on the street at night, turn light son and stand about 50 feet form the vehicle to see if either light (low beams) seem too high. It would appear brighter if it is too high, dimmer if it is too low.

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.

•1
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.
•2
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.
•3
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.
•4
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.
•5
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.
•6
Turn on the headlights and shine the beams against the wall.
•7
Use a measuring tape to measure the distance between the ground and the center horizontal line in the plastic lenses of the headlights.
•8
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.
•9
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.
•10
Use a measuring tape to measure the distance between the two vertical lines in the center of each headlight lens.
•11
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.
•12
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.
•13
Replace the caps on the top headlight adjustment screws and close the hood.

All the best!

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


Locate a vertical surface to reflect the headlights against. This can be a wall or a darkly painted sheet of plywood set up on its side.


Park the vehicle on a level surface 10 feet away from the wall or darkly painted sheet of plywood. The vehicle must be positioned so that its centerline intersects the wall or plywood sheet at a 90-degree angle.


Determine the centerline of the vehicle and draw a vertical line corresponding to it on the wall.


Push up and down on the front of the vehicle until the suspension begins to rock. Then allow the suspension to settle. This will ensure that the headlights are at the correct height.


Measure the distance between the center of the headlight and the ground on each headlight.


Mark the height of each headlamp on the wall and draw a horizontal line between them.


Measure the distance between the center each headlamp and divide by two.


Measure on the wall, starting from the centerline, along the horizontal line the distance you calculated in the above Step on either side of the centerline. The horizontal line represents the distance from the ground, and the mark you are making in this step represents the distance from the centerline of the vehicle to the center of the headlamp. Where those two lines on each side of the vehicle intersect is where you will be aiming your headlights.

Aim the Headlights Remove the four screws that secure the headlight trim bezel to the grille.


Remove the headlight trim bezel.
Turn the headlight high beams on.
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 project directly onto the marks you made on the wall.
Push the car up and down on the front suspension until it begins to rock, then allow it to settle.
Check the headlight alignment against the marks on the wall to make sure they remain consistent.
Replace the headlight trim bezel.

Adjust the headlight beam on 2002 Subaru Outback


two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks

Headlights out of alignment


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Needs adjustment.
  2. Bring your car close to a wall, measure the distance between the headlight in the car it self.
  3. Copy the measurement {Span between the headlights} & the distance from ground in the wall / And make adjustment accordingly.
Try it, & PLZ; let me know if I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.
