Pop your hood open and on flat surface check too see where the beads are in the bubble levels,if they are off then there are 2 adjustments on each headlight,some require special tool they look like little gears on the adjusters. make sure car is on good flat surface

I have 2001 gmc 3500 dually durmax I adjusting headlight the driver side low beam I move up to where has to be and it make the high beam way to high


  • Take it to a shop that has headlight aiming equipment. The adjuster compensates for level and uneven floors when setting up to aim your headlights. Doing it that way assures you won't be misaimed causing oncoming drivers to be blinded. Keeps the cops from ticketing you too.

I own a 1990 Mazda MX5 and the headlights need adjusting - how do you adjust them please. The housing is flush with the bonnet so no need to adjust this just the aim.


After taking off the covers which suround the head lamps. There are two screws 1 in the 6 0`clock position to adjust the up and down position and one in the 9 0`clock position to adjust side to side position

Adjusting Headlight on Mazda 626


At the back of the headlight there are screws that adjust up and down and left to right,look carefully as it will be written on the headlight,you will see it stamped into the top of the housing just follow the indicators on the light to adjust it down,and park in front of a wall on a flat surface if possible at night or dusk to see how much youve changed the height,its not difficult to do just look carefully

Aim hid 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.

2005 RX8 headlights


on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.
