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.

How to Adjust a Headlamp Beam on a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier...

When you replace the headlamp assembly in the 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier, you must also adjust the headlamp beams. Like most vehicles, there are two screws located on the headlamp assembly that control the vertical and horizontal direction of the headlamps. Proper adjustment is necessary for adequate visibility during nighttime driving; bad adjustment can make it difficult for you to see or make it difficult for oncoming drivers to see, creating a potentially dangerous situation. You can adjust the headlamp beams yourself with a screwdriver in about 15 minutes.
Park the Chevrolet Cavalier on a flat surface facing a wall or garage door approximately 15 feet away. Park the Car so that it is perpendicular to the wall.

Lift the hood and remove the plastic trim panel above each of the headlights. There are three plastic fasteners that secure the trim panel; pry the fasteners out using a flathead screwdriver. Lift the trim panel up to remove. There are two adjusting screws beneath the trim panel, one on the top of the headlamp assembly and one along the outer side of the headlamp assembly.

Turn the headlights on so that they shine on the wall. Ensure the headlights are on the "dim" setting.

Adjust the vertical bolt, located on the top of the headlight assembly near the center of the vehicle to raise or lower the headlight, using a crosspoint screwdriver. Turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the headlamp beam; turn the screw clockwise to raise the headlamp beam. Adjust the headlamp so that the beam is below a driver's eye level.

Adjust the horizontal bolt, located on the outer side of the headlamp assembly to move the headlamp beam right of left, using a crosspoint screwdriver. Turn the screw counterclockwise to move the headlamp beam right; turn the screw clockwise to turn the beam left. Adjust the headlamp so that the beam shines straight ahead or slightly toward the center of the vehicle.

Replace the plastic trim panel and fasteners and close the hood. Warning: raising the lights too high can make it difficult for other drivers to see you.

99 Grand Voyager, headlamps adjusted too low. Do I need a special tool to adjust the height? Do you just turn the adjustment screw or is there some release set screw that you have to loosen before you can...


Purchased a 4 mm socket and had the necessary adjustment with the adjustment screw right above the headlights. Clockwise will raise the lights while counterclockwise will lower the lights.

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.
