How do you adjust head light buckets on a 1987 trans am

First you have to unplug the headlight motor, then you should see a turn knob up top next to your headlights. You might have to push the lights up or down as youre turning the knob but that should work. Thats how my 1983 is.

1987 pontiac firebird, does anyone know how to fix dash lights.?

you have to take out the gauges, they will be on the back. In some cases you have to take apart most of the dash to get the instrument panel out, sometimes you can just take the trim off the instrument panel. I had to take apart most of my dash in my 86.
