    I am not sure where the screws are.  There is one next to 2.1%, is that the right one?  Trying to do this myself since the hubby is in the Coast Guard on a boat out right now.


    Thanks, Courtney

You are mixing dual element (2 DOTS) and single element (1 DOT) bulbs.
Open ALL socket and look inside and fit the correct bulb back into the socket.

How to adjust headlights ...the seem to beam too high.


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.

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.

Head lights


Open the hood and get a bright flashlight handy (even in daylight) it will make them easier to spot. Look on top of the headlight assembly 1 st for the left/right screw(s) and then straight into the assembly from the front for the left/right scew(s). The adjustments are not always clearly marked but you will usually see a flathead, phillips. or sometimes a torx head adjustment screw. The front adjustments tune the headlights up/down - the top adjust left/right. Good Luck!!! P.S. the best way to adjust them once you have found the screws is to park about 5 feet away from a garage door at night. Begin adjustments against the beams on the door. They should be directed center left/right and slightly downward up/down.
