SOURCE: adjust headlights

There are adjusting screws on the top and side of each headlight. I like to get on a really dark road at night and set them to how I like them without blinding oncomming drivers. Good luck

SOURCE: can't adjust 2004 Ford Expedition headlight

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.

This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

SOURCE: Can't find headlight adjustment screws

They nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.


Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams: Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

How do I adjust the headlights?


There are adjusting screws on the top and side of each headlight. You can aim them using a wall or your garage door to check level and projection and take it on the road to check whether you are blinding oncoming drivers. Driver side headlight should be aimed slightly to right to avoid that problem. If you live in a state with vehicle inspections, the inspection stations should have a device to check your headlights' aim.

I need to adjust my headlights on my 1997 eclipse but dont know how so hope fully you guys could help me


on the back of the headlights, there are to circle knobs, probably grey, if you reach down there, then you can turn them with your fingers, that will adjust the up and down of your headlight, there is another knob right beside that one or on the other end of the headlight and that will adjust the left and right 

if you have any more questions then just ask
