SOURCE: 1998 Ford Mustang Headlight 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.

SECTION 417-01: Exterior Lighting 2000 Mustang Workshop Manual GENERAL PROCEDURES Procedure revision date: 12/09/2002 Headlamp Adjustment Headlamp Aiming

  1. The headlamp aiming procedure depends on the type of beam pattern the headlamp is equipped with. Vehicles may come equipped with visual optical right (VOR), visual optical left (VOL), or SAE only (includes sealed beam type) headlamps. To identify the headlamp beam pattern, look on the headlamp lens. Molded in small letters on the headlamp lens is one of the following:
    • SAE
    • VOR or SAE
    • VOL or SAE
  1. Once the headlamp beam pattern is identified, aim the headlamps using one of the following methods as applicable.
    • Photometric aimers can aim SAE, VOR and VOL type headlamps. This is the preferred method of headlamp aiming.
    • Visual or screen method aiming can be used to aim SAE, VOR and VOL type headlamps.
    • Mechanical aimers can be used only with SAE type headlamps. Lamps that can be aimed mechanically will have three nibs molded into the lens of the lamp.
Photometric Aiming
  1. For the photometric aiming procedure, refer to the appropriate photometric headlamp aimer instruction manual.
Screen Method Aiming
All headlamp types
NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for VOR or VOL headlamps.
NOTE: Consult your state vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters.
  1. Before starting headlamp adjustment:
    • Check the tire inflation.
    • Check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of fuel.
    • Check that the headlamps are clean.
    • Check for correct headlamp operation.
    • Check that the vehicle is on level ground.
    • If the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure that the switch is on.
  1. NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4 meters (8 feet) wide.
    Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6 meters (25 feet) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
    a0022317.gif
  1. NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked by a 3 mm (0.12 in) circle on the headlamp lens.
    Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
    1. Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record.
    1. Make a 2.4 meter (8 foot) horizontal mark (masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.
    a0066365.gif
  1. NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern.
    Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
  1. NOTE: For SAE type headlamps, the appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
    On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern. Place the top edge of the high intensity zone even with the horizontal reference line.
VOR type headlamps
  1. NOTE: The appearance of the VOR beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
    Identify at the top edge of this high intensity area a distinct horizontal cutoff in the beam pattern. If the top edge of this cutoff is not even with the horizontal reference line, the headlamp beam will need to be adjusted.
    a0042248.gif
VOL type headlamps
  1. For VOL type headlamps, there will be a distinct cutoff in the left portion of the beam pattern. The edge of this cutoff should be positioned 50.2 mm (2 in) below the horizontal reference line.
    1. Horizontal reference line.
    1. Top edge of the beam pattern.
    1. High intensity zone.
    a0042249.gif
Mechanical Aiming
  1. For the mechanical aiming procedure, refer to the appropriate mechanical headlamp aimer instruction manual.

Adjusting the headlight beams on a 96 mustang gt PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS BK HALO lights? The lights are installed and look great but they are beaming down in the front of the car. How do I adjust them?


there should be an adjuster ring attached to the headlight housing. It will likely be a hex bolt or a allen key to adjust it. There should be one for vertical tilt and one for horizontal angle. They will generally be located right by the bulb housing (where you insert the bulb into the headlight.

Headlights flickering off and on 1999 mustang


do you have the fog lamps on at the same time? If yes, don't use them.

If not, it could be the headlamp switch. Something is drawing too much current.
