SOURCE: hit a dog. headlight is out of adjustment

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.

Is the head light in a 2004 passat a bulb with two filaments (low and high beams in the same bulb)?


If it has a normal headlight system than yes the high and low beam are the same bulb the part number will be 1255/H7 If you have HID headlights than you will have a seperate high and low beam bulb. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have an 04 passat wagon. Tonight the headlights would not come on (only the fog lights or the brights). Had my oil changed yesterday and don't know if maybe they pulled a fuse or something? Any idea...


Your second low beam may have burned out last night (that is, you were running on one headlight for a while).

Buy a new headlight (you may have never changed the headlights on a 2004. If you have changed them in the past 3 or 4 years, my solutions is likely wrong.

Good luck and please rate me.

Left headlight (adjustment screws for right headlight are mirror image):
1 - Lateral adjustment 2 - Height adjustment
  • Access adjustment screws through hole in lock carrier (Phillips head or socket head).
  • Turn the adjusting screws for lateral adjustment -1- and height adjustment -2- until the correct setting is achieved.
NOTE: Where equipped, ensure equal movement/function of headlights during automatic headlight range adjustment.

2004 vw passat - one headlight out but bulb is


The filament in every bulb acts like a fuse. Also the fuse block may have fuses for your lights. Some cars do and some do not. If the fuses are good, more than likely a short in the wiring could be the problem. The switch is good if one light comes on you know

Trying to change headlight bulbs.How does bulb unlock? Dont have enough room to see or reach in


Typically, the entire assembly gets removed. Be sure not to change any ADJUSTMENT screws.
There are usually 3 to 5 mounting screws, and the whole component comes out.
You should be able to easily change the bulb after that.

Can I buy a low beam and change it by myself in passat 2004 or I have to change the whole headlight?


Whichever lamp is burned out, remove it by taking it out of the back of the headlight assembly and then go to the parts store and buy the appropriate replacement lamp and reinstall. It is a fairly easy job unless there is (sometimes) something blocking the back of the assembly, but this is not too common.
