Question about 2008 Chevrolet Impala
I want to raise the headlights. Do I turn the adjuster clockwise or the opposite? Thank you, Gary
SOURCE: adjusting headlights
Park about 20 feet away from a smooth wall, facing directly at it. Put a piece of tape on the wall about 26-28" off the ground. Turn on the lights and see where they hit the wall - you want the beams to hit the wall centered on the tape. If they're not centered on the tape, open the hood and look at the top of the headlights, along the back of them. At the inboard and outboard corners, you'll see adjustment screws. One of them will aim the light up and down, and the other will aim it left to right (not sure which is which on the Windstar, but on many cars the lateral adjustment is the inboard screw, and the outboard screw adjusts beam height). Just turn the screws until the light height is centered on the tape, then take a test drive and try it out. If it's still too low, turn them up farther. That's all there is to it.

to raise you headlights there is a small brass allen screw located above each headlight under the hood. to raise your headlights turn clockwise until they reach the desired level.

Turning the screw should be all you have to do. Not sure which way but if you have it lined up on something after dark you will be able to tell if your going the right way.

Ok, locate the relay panel (probably inder the hood) and find the relay that controls the headlamps. With your headlight switch "on", pull the relay and see if your getting a hot current to the connectors in the relay panel. If it's hot, replace the relay. If no current, it's probably your headlight switch.

The headlamps are adjusted by a wheel which can be operated by aphillips screwdriver. There's a hole in the top of the headlamphousing or radiator support which leads to the wheel with little teethon it on the back of the headlamp. The lamps on your car emit a veryshort but wide beam, so no horizontal adjustment should be needed.
