Headlamp Adjustment 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When I attempt to adjust the headlamps with the adjusting screws, the lamps do not move and the screws just make an aweful clicking sound. It appears that the previous owner encountered the same problems as the slot for the allen wrench in the adjusting scews is nearly rounded out. Any suggestions?

    OK thanks! I'm assuming the screws are seperate items that can be easily purchased?

You may have to pull the screws out, rethread and then install new screws. I would pull the adjustment screws out, and look at the threads on both the screws and the headlight itself. Make sure the threads are still good

    Yes, very easily at any auto parts store. Now the reason I think that is because if the threads get ruined it will not put enough pressure on the headlights to move them up and down and they just lip threads and that is what you are hearing, hope this makes everything better

chapter 8L
page 6

To adjust headlamp alignment, rotate alignment
screws to achieve the specified low beam hot spot
pattern.
A properly aimed low beam headlamp will project a
high intensity light pattern on the screen with the
horizontal cut-off line aligned with the tape line 130
mm (5.12 in.) below the headlamp centerline. The
intersection of the horizontal and 15 degree cut-off
lines in the projected pattern should align to the
intersection of the headlamp centerline vertical tape
line and the tape line 130 mm (5.12 in.) below the
headlamp horizontal centerline

Is it possible that my dashboard lights flicker on and off beacause of my altanator


I have 2 98 Grand Cherokees and both of them have the same issue. The rheostat in the headlamp switch for adjusting dash lamp intensity is going bad. The fix is a new headlamp switch, they sell for 70-270 dollars depending on options installed on your Jeep

I don't know how to change the head light on my 1997 Jeep grand Cherokee. there doesn't seem to be any screws to loosen the light.


Hi Clint,

I just want you to know that you are not crazy or blind!

The reason you cannot find any screws is because you are dealing with a snap-together vehicle.
If you only want to replace the bulb, you can reach around the radiator support and twist the bulb retainer to remove it and the bulb. If you are wanting to replace the ENTIRE headlamp assembly, follow the instructions below.

REMOVAL

Grasp lower edge of headlamp lens and pull straight back (away) from Grille Opening Reinforcement (GOR) . Disengage lower adjuster pivots from lens assembly.
Grasp upper edge of headlamp lens. Pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR). Disengage upper adjuster pivot from lens assembly.
Rotate bulb lock ring counter clockwise. and remove ring and bulb from lens.
INSTALLATION

Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.
Align upper adjust pivot into headlamp opening and snap into place.
Snap lower adjuster pivots into place.

How do I adjust the low beam height on a 2007 jeep grand cherokee/


1. Turn the headlamps ON and select the LOW beams for vehicles in all markets except Japan. Vehicles for the Japanese market should have the headlamp HIGH beams selected.
2. Insert a screwdriver through the outboard clearance hole (1) in the front lamp unit cover (2) to rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw on each front lamp (3) to adjust the beam height as required.
3. For export markets only, insert a screwdriver through the inboard clearance hole in the front lamp unit cover to rotate the headlamp horizontal adjustment screw on each front lamp to adjust the beam right or left as required.

How do i install the headlight assembly


REMOVAL
  1. Grasp lower edge of headlamp lens and pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR) Disengage lower adjuster pivots rom lens assembly.
  2. Grasp upper edge of headlamp lens. Pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR) Disengage upper adjuster pivot from lens assembly.
  3. Rotate bulb lock ring counterclockwise. and remove ring and bulb from lens.
INSTALLATION
  1. Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.
  2. Align upper adjust pivot into headlamp opening and snap into place.
  3. Snap lower adjuster pivots into place.
They are held in with 2 ball-in-sockets that pop in and out.
I don't think you can grab the headlights well enough to pull them out, so open the hood, turn the two vertical adjustment screws until the horizontal threaded rods (which connect to opposite corners on the back of the headlight housing) push the headlight all the way out. Then carefully (with pliers or maybe just by hand) pull out the rods from the sockets.

How do I adjust the aim of the headlights?


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.

The lenses themselves cannot be adjusted to conform between left hand and right hand drive. The reflector or projector of a left hand drive vehicle is designed to throw more light towards the right side of the vehicle and vice versa for right hand drive vehicles.
