If you are looking down at the headlights from above there is a whiteish nylon screw that you can use either an allen wrench or a phillips screwdriver. Clockwise lowers, Counter clock raises.

My headlights would stay on, or not turn on. Wipers would wipe without being on or not work when I did turn them on. Turn signals would work sometimes but not always.anyone know solution?

Best bet would be to get a service manual. If the headlights etc are controlled by a BCM there would likely also be codes set to let you know where the problem is. The vintage makes me suspedt these units are all computer controlled and if so the BCM may well be afulty, BUT ???????????????

Adjusting headlights

You should not try to adjust the headlights yourself because if you get them to where they shine in other drivers eyes when going down the road you could be fined for it.If you don't know how or where the beams should shine you could make it worse,they have to be a certain hieght and a certain angle.

How to adjust headlights on 2004 sequoia cannot locate adjusters

review this and let me know if you need more help?!


(a) Place the vehicle in the following conditions.

 The area around the headlight is not deformed.

 The vehicle is parked on a level surface.

 Tire inflation pressure is the specified value.

 A driver is in the driver's seat and the vehicle is in a state ready for driving (with a tank full).

 The vehicle has been bounced several times.

(b) Check the headlight aiming.

(1) Prepare a thick white paper.

(2) Stand the paper perpendicular to the ground at the position 3 m (9.84 ft) away from the headlights

bulb center.

(3) Ensure that the center line of the vehicle and the paper face forms a 90-degree angle as shown

in the illustration.

(4) Draw a horizontal line (H line) on the paper, showing where the headlights should strike.

(5) Draw a vertical line (V line) at the position where the extended center line of the vehicle strikes.

(6) Draw 2 vertical lines (by connecting the low and high beam center marks) to where the both headlights

should strike (V RH and V LH lines).

(7) Draw a horizontal line (by connecting the both low beam center marks) at the position where the

headlights should strike (H RH and H LH lines).


The H RH and H LH line is 0.4° below the horizontal line (H line) of the light axis.

(8) Start the engine.

(9) Turn the headlights ON.

(10) Check that the headlights properly strike the position shown in the illustration.

Adjusting the headlight beams on a 96 mustang gt PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS BK HALO lights? The lights are installed and look great but they are beaming down in the front of the car. How do I adjust them?

there should be an adjuster ring attached to the headlight housing. It will likely be a hex bolt or a allen key to adjust it. There should be one for vertical tilt and one for horizontal angle. They will generally be located right by the bulb housing (where you insert the bulb into the headlight.
