Adjust Headlights Horizontally in Hyundai Sonata 2002

I can't find the horizontal screw to adjust my headlights in my 2002 sonata. I looked at the manual and it said to take to dealership. Does anyone know how to locate this?

    All I know is that they told me a Pep Boys that you have to have a special tool to replace 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)

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.

How do you adjust headlights on a 1993 chevy C1500


if you look at the light, there is an adjustment screw at the top of the light that controls the up and down motion , clockwise will raise the beam, and a screw on the side that controls the side to side motion. the best way to center your lights would be to park the vehicle 25 feet away from a verticle wall. be sure to be very square to the wall and on level ground. make a tape line vertically on the wall in very close relation to the center of the vehicle, and another tape line vertically in very close relation to the center of each headlight. now place a tape line horizontally in very close relation to the center of the headlights. start with low beam adjustment. adjust the high intensity zone to 2 inches below the horizontal line and 2 inches to the inside of the vertical line directly in front of the headlight. for high beam adjustment, adjust so that the high intensity zone is centered on the center vertical line and just below the horizontal line. hope this helps

Adjusting Headlights of a 2006 Hyundai Sonota


The headlamps are adjusted by a wheel which can be operated by aphillips screwdriver. There's a hole in the top of the headlamphousing or radiator support which leads to the wheel with little teethon it on the back of the headlamp. The lamps on your car emit a veryshort but wide beam, so no horizontal adjustment should be needed.

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.
