Adjustment of headlights...how to

I have new headlamps for my 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS. They are OEM replacement lights. They went on just fine. I have noticed that my Passenger side light seems to be shining a bit lower than the drivers side. As I come up to a stopped truck at a redlight, I can barely see the reflection on my passenger side headlight. How do I adjust this up? Or is this normal? I didn't notice this when I had the original pair on my car.

There is an adjustment screw for the headlight located on the headlight housing. You should just have to turn it clockwise (I believe it requires an allen wrench) and that will raise the light beam higher. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thanks and enjoy,

Look for a poor ground on the LH light assembly. You'll need to remove the assembly to do this.

What kind of oil do i put in my 2001 subaru impreza outback sport


The service manual calls for 5W-30. Full synthetic would be your best bet on oil changes with a OEM Subaru oil filter and new gaskets (o-rings). Depending on your area (hot or cold), the viscosity rating of the oil you use can vary to off set efficiency in the hot or cold temperatures.

Both headlights out... fuse fixes it temporarily


Are you absolutely positive you are installing the correct amp fuse ?
I think headlights on Subaru's run thru a relay, which could be bad.
Here's a how-to that may help.

Adjustment of 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.
