My girl friend bought this car new and the headlights were not right. After she took it in for several services, asking them to adjust the headlights each time we gave up on their ability. The owners manual does not give this info. I am very capable but just meed some instruction. Your help will be greatly appreciated. THANKS !

I adjust headlights at night best way for me .. some people set them up againist a wall which is no good .. Take it out on a road where you wont get hit from behind and then set adjusting screws to fit your needs .. there should be a right and left screw on each headlight and a up and down screw also. there is only one each one for up and down and one for in and out ... on each headlight .

Need to adj head light


There are 2 adjusters for each headlight 1 left-right and 1 up-down. Raise the hood and look behind the headlight carrier for 2 long hex screws. 1 at the top of the carrier, and 1 at the center side of the carrier.

Head light adjustment 2004 optima


This is how to adjust 04 Optima headlights:

For all descriptions, assume that you are standing BEHIND the light assembly.

On the back of the headlight assembly you will see the bulb cover (round cover with tabs) stamped "OPEN" and an arrow showing which direction to turn to remove. Look toward the 8 o'clock position for driver lamp, 4 o'clock for passenger lamp of this cap. Partially obscured by the sheet metal you will see a black screw 3/4 exposed on the headlight assembly. It is at the edge of the sheet metal and very difficult to see, but it,s there. You may need to remove the assembly to get a better look. If needed, see below for lamp assembly removal.

How to remove the headlight: There are two 10mm bolts holding the assembly in place. One is above the headlight and the other one is between the headlight and the high beam light. Unplug the two harnesses that hook into the headlight, if needed, and it is ready to be removed the car. Gently work it out of position.

Take a Phillips screwdriver and turn the black screw - it adjusts the light vertically. Turn it counter-clockwise to make the light go up and clockwise to adjust down. Its as easy once you find the screw.
