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: 1998 Ford Mustang Headlight Adjustment

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 (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

SOURCE: how to replace ignition lock cylinder on 1984 Ford

With Key

  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. On tilt columns, remove the upper extension shroud by unsnapping the shroud from the retaining clip at the 9 o'clock position.
  3. Remove the trim shroud halves.
  4. Unplug the wire connector at the key warning switch.
  5. Place the shift lever in PARK and turn the key to ON.
  6. Place a 1/8 in. wire pin in the hole in the casting surrounding the lock cylinder and depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the cylinder.
  7. When installing the cylinder, turn the lock cylinder to the RUN position and depress the retaining pin, then insert the lock cylinder into its housing in the flange casting. Assure that the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will allow the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder cast housing hole.
  8. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal.

This section is for a NON-TILT with no key or non-functioning cylinder:
Fixed Columns
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the turn signal lever.
  4. Remove the column trim shrouds.
  5. Unbolt the steering column and lower it carefully.
  6. Remove the ignition switch and warning buzzer and pin the switch in the LOCK position.
  7. Remove the turn signal switch.
  8. Remove the snapring and T-bolt nuts that retain the flange casting to the column outer tube.
  9. Remove the flange casting, upper shaft bearing, lock cylinder, ignition switch actuator and the actuator rod by pulling the entire assembly over the end of the steering column shaft.
  10. Remove the lock actuator insert, the T-bolts and the automatic transmission indicator insert, or, with manual transmissions, the key release lever.
  11. Upon reassembly, the following parts must be replaced with new parts:
    • Flange
    • Lock cylinder assembly
    • Steering column lock gear
    • Steering column lock bearing
    • Steering column upper bearing retainer
    • Lock actuator assembly
  1. Assembly is a reversal of the disassembly procedure. It is best to install a new upper bearing. Check that the vehicle starts only in PARK and NEUTRAL.

This section is for TILT and no key or non-functioning cylinder:

Tilt Columns
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. Remove the steering column shrouds.
  3. Using masking tape, tape the gap between the steering wheel hub and the cover casting. Cover the entire circumference of the casting. Cover the seat and floor area with a drop-cloth.
  4. Pull out the hazard switch and tape it in a downward position.
  5. The lock cylinder retaining pin is located on the outside of the steering column cover casting adjacent to the hazard flasher button.
  6. Tilt the steering column to the full up position and prepunch the lock cylinder retaining pin with a sharp punch.
  7. Using a 1/8 in. drill bit, mounted in a right angle drive drill adapter, drill out the retaining pin, going no deeper than 1/2 in. (12.7mm).
  8. Tilt the column to the full down position. Place a chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap and using a hammer break away the cap from the lock cylinder.
  9. Using a 3/8 in. drill bit, drill down the center of the ignition lock cylinder key slot about 13/4 in. (44mm), until the lock cylinder breaks loose from the steering column cover casting.
  10. Remove the lock cylinder and the drill shavings.
  11. Remove the steering wheel.
  12. Remove the turn signal lever.
  13. Remove the turn signal switch attaching screws.
  14. Remove the key buzzer attaching screw.
  15. Remove the turn signal switch up and over the end of the column, but don't disconnect the wiring.
  16. Remove the 4 attaching screws from the cover casting and lift the casting over the end of the steering shaft, allowing the turn signal switch to pass through the casting. The removal of the casting cover will expose the upper actuator. Remove the upper actuator.
  17. Remove the drive gear, snapring and washer from the cover casting along with the upper actuator.
  18. Clean all components and replace any that appear damaged or worn.
  19. Installation is the reverse of removal. Check for proper operation.

Can't locate headlight adjuster screw 2010 siera 1500


Pop the hood and look straight down on the top of the light, behind the light there should be a screw hole (one round and one oblong) to the left and the right. You'll need a torx driver (I believe a T15) to adjust these. The round hole is for vertical adjustment and the oblong is for horizontal

How to get to air fuel mixture screws for adjustment with carb on engine, no room to get flex screw driver to the screws ! This is on a 1984 Ford E-150 van with a 302.


Do you have a Holly on that ? if not then, you have to pull the carb. apart to adjust the fuel/air mix, are you talking about the idle air mix screws, this only adjust the idle mix, not the fuel ratio when running above idle, I have seen slots (screw driver) oval, hex screws, your going to have to see which one you have, take the air cleaner off and reach it from the front of the van.

What is the trick to adjusting the headlights on an E-250 - yr. 2000. I need them down just a touch.


There's a small dent at the top of the trim that surrounds the bulbs. This is actually where the screw for this is. you'll see it, can't miss it. Look directly at the center of the bulb and go directly up. That's for the sealed beam type headlights, which I'm assuming you have. There's also a horizontal adjustment screw typically on the outside edge of your headlights. Not sure what size/type screwdriver you'll need though... Hope that helps!

I don't know where the air/fuel mixture screw is on my carb


There should be one screw (I'm assuming it's the Carter YF carburetor 1 barrel) that's by itself away from linkages etc, more to center at base of carb where it meets manifold, that is angled approx 45 degrees going in to base. That should be your mixture screw. What symptoms are you experiencing anyway?

How do you adjust the headlight of a 2005 Honda Odyssey?


I assume you are talking about a vertical adjustment.

If so Easy enough. Park the car about 25 feet from a wall or so. This is normal range for adjustment. Turn on your low beams.

Now Pop the hood and take a look at your headlight On You will see a black rubber bump stop. This is used to adjust your hood height.

Right behind that you will see a area where you can insert a screw driver into. Turn that with the screw driver and the headlight vertical angle will change

Headlight installation


Hello, the Festiva headlights are very easy to replace, but you have to remove the sidemarker lamps and grill first. That is the trick to the job. I verified the procedure with my Festiva shop manual, so I am sure about it. To remove the side lamp, it has an arm in the upper left that you remove the screw from and then the screws on the outboard side of the side lamp. Once the grill is also removed, you can get to the headlamp holding bolts. Remove those. Then to get the headlamp free from the frame you need to remove the headlamp adjusting screws on the sides. Lastly, remove the wiring from the rear by turning the ring counter-clockwise. That's it. To reinstall the new one, do it in the reverse of the removal procedure. You will probably have to align the headlight beam or at least check it after installing the new headlight. It is adjusted with the headlight adjustment screws that change the angle of the headlight.
