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.

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.

Which way do the headlight vertical adjustments turn to raise the beam?

Turn on your headlights and locate the two adjustment holes that have the adjustment screws inside them on the sides of each headlight. The top hole has the vertical adjustment screw and the bottom hole has the horizontal adjustment screw. Turn the vertical screw clockwise to raise the beam and counterclockwise to lower; turn the horizontal screw clockwise to move the beam right and counterclockwise to move the beam left.

Do I turn the screwdriver counter clockwise or the toothed wheel, in order to adjust/raise the headlights? The manual is vague on this.

Pull your vehicle up to a wall about 15 feet away and turn the headlights on. Now you will be able to see exactly which way you are moving the lights. This is the only way to really get them adjusted properly.

Adjusting headlights on a 2005 ford freestar

hello wwhampton,

open the hood, take a close look at your headlights, if it is a headlight assembly, there are two screws with big plastic heads on the back of the assembly, these are the adjusting screws. one for horizontal adjustment and the other one is for vertical adjustment.

if the headlight is a round or square ordinary bulb, the adjusting screws are located near the bulb itself, these are philips screws. one on the top and one on the side.

a suggestion; when adjusting headlights, face the car to a wall about 5 ft away and adjust the headlight.

tnx 4 using fixya.
