How do you adjust headlights??

The best way to do it is to park your car in front on a garage door, a building or put a piece of plywood in front. Whichever you use, park you car at least 10 feet away; so you can tell if you are going up, down or in the middle when adjusting.
  1. Remove the four screws that secure the headlight trim bezel to the grille.
  2. Remove the headlight trim bezel.
  3. Turn the headlight high beams on.
  4. Adjust the headlights. Use the adjustment screws located along the outboard side and the inboard lower corner of the headlight bucket. Adjust the headlights until the beams are centered directly on the wall.
  5. Replace the headlight trim bezel.

How do I adjust the headlights, (up, down, left, right) on a 99 escort se?

there should be an adjustment screw on the top center of each lamp it will be a philips headed screw tighten it to raise the lamp loosen to lower it there will be the same type of screws on the sides of the lamps as well the easy way to get them level is to pull the car up to a concrete or brick wall something with lines on it and adjust them.
