Question about 1989 Nissan Pulsar

1 Answer

Can not get the headlamps adjusted properly.

The adjusting screw has been tightened as much as possible and the lights still shine upwards. Do I have to remove the entire light assembly to readjust the headlamps?

It is very possible because there is springs on the back of some assemblies and it is very possible the spring is off
I always adjust my headlights at night while facing the side of a building or a glass window that way you know you have them both the same but if you do it in the day time all you need is a small lever to get them both the same

How do i adjust the head lights in or out on a 2004 dodge stratus---or can i?


If by in or out you mean make the beam pattern move closer or farther away from the vehicle, then yes you can. There are adjustment screws (usually 2) on each headlamp assembly. One raises and lowers the headlamp. This will move the beam closer to (down) or further from (up) the vehicle. The other will adjust the beam from left to right. The screw at the top (or bottom) is for the vertical and the screw on the side is for horizontal. The easiest way to adjust the headlamps correctly is to, at night, go to a location where you can park about 50 feet away from a blank wall. Turn on the low beam headlamps. In order to "properly" adjust the lamps, the left side headlamp's main beam should cast is "ring" on the wall at about the centerline of the car (left-to-right adjustment), with the bottom of the beam just reaching the ground (vertical adjustment). The right side headlamp should be adjusted to shine along the right edge of the vehicle (where the white edge line would be) at the 50 foot mark (left-to-right) and the height should be the same as the left headlamp - beam just touching the ground. Many people make the mistake of pointing them straight down the road. This causes "overspray" into the oncoming lanes and blinds oncoming motorists. I'm sure you've experienced the annoyance of someone coming toward you with their lights right in your eyes. That is caused by misadjustment. If you get the low means right, the high beams will work well for approximately 200-300 feet down the road, which, unless you are night racing, is more than enough distance to see well to drive.

How do you change the headlight


On a Newer Vehicle you'll replace the Headlight Bulb
Open the engine compartment hood.

Locate the back of the headlight to determine the lamp and bulb type.
Decide which bulb you need to replace.
Purchase the correct bulb for your headlamp.
Behind the headlight the lamp the socket is removable.
Remove Socket then replace lamp (bulb).
Carefully re-install the socket


On Older vehicles:


Remove the screws that connect the headlamp frame to the
bracket holding the headlamp. Make certain you turn only
the screws that hold the lamp frame, not the adjusting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector in the back of the lamp
by pulling the socket away from the headlamp with your hand.
Remove the headlight from the bracelet area and discard it.
Replace with the new headlight, making sure that it is positioned
right side up.
Plug the wire socket into the new headlight, which holding the
headlight securely.
Replace the headlight into the frame.
Place the frame onto the headlight bracket.
Reattach the screws to hold the frame and bracket in place.
Do not adjust the setting screws for the direction the headlight
shines.


At night partk in front of a wall and shine your lights on the wall
so see if the headlight shifted during installation.

How to adjust the headlamp height, I think my lights are aiming to high. Cheers


I suggest that you make a test of the proper height of your lights, before you attempt an adjustment.
This can be accomplished by driving your Mazda up to within 10 FT of a blank wall.
Next take a piece of masking tape and tape it to the wall at a height of 30 inches.
Put your headlamps on - on low beam - the lights should shine on the tape.

Good luck, and let me know how you make out.

How do i adjust my headlingt on a 2001 suzuki xl7


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.

My right headlamp is out of adjustment.


yep, that would be it. The adjustment screw or hole is stripped. You will have to either pry or manually adjust headlight and/or keep it held up with something.

How do I align the head lights for an 83 CJ7.


There are two screws on each headlamp. One screw is on the side which turning in or out will adjust side to side movement. There is a screw on the top of the headlamp which turning in or out will adjust up and down. When you turn the top screw in it will make the headlamp shine farther.
