How to align headlights


Are your headlights beams too high? too low? Then bear with me and maybe I can help
Horizontal headlight adjustment is easy. See the screw on the inside top of each light? turn the screw left and your headlight beam goes outward; turn the screw right and the beam goes inward, (toward the center.)
Okay now Vertical adjustment is a little more involved. Start by removing the corner lens; take out the screw on top of the headlight and pull the corner lens forward. This will allow you to access two 10mm bolts holding the headlights in on the sides.
Remove those, along with one 10mm nut on the backside of the headlight assembly (near where your bulbs plug in). Remove your headlight bulbs carefully - I usually put a paper towel around them to protect them from dirt and oil. Now the only thing holding your light housings on are the horizontal adjustment
screws. Just slide the screws out from the lens, and then remove the headlight from the car.
If you look at your headlights now, there is another screw that looks just like the horizontal adjustment screw.
In order to adjust this, you need to remove the 10mm bolt labeled "A".
Now slide the plastic headlight base off of that bolt. The whole plastic base will now be free to swivel on the adjustment screw. What you need to do now is to turn the plastic base around the screw; if you turn it clockwise or right, it will lower your headlight beam when reinstalled. If you turn it left, it will raise the beams.
I ended up only turning each side lower by one revolution. You shouldn't need more than one or two turns. It also becomes hard to slide the housing back over the "A" bolt after two turns. If
in doubt about whether the beams will be raised or lowered, on the final pic you can see the clean area of the bolt on the left side. if you lengthen this side, it causes the beam to go down.
Its really easier to understand as you are doing it, if this does not seem clear. Just use some common sense and you'll see what I mean.
Installation is the reverse of removal.

Headlight Mis-Alignment


It is most likely that the in-out angle is factory set. As for the lamp it should remove from the rear of the lens assembly. Where the wires plug into the lamp, there is a ring that twists and releases the lamp. It is also possible that the lamp itself can be twisted which will release it.

How do you adjust the headlights on a 2002 Mazda Miata?


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.

Headlight


on most vehicle from that period there is a trim piece around the headlight that can be removed to access the actual mechanism that holds the headlight in place, usually a ring around the light. do not confuse the headlight adjusting screws only on one side or only the top or bottom for the headlight mount screws.
