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.

How to adjust headlights

In my CX-9 on the left side of the drivers dash, below the steering wheel, there is a little adjustment wheel for headlight up and down adjustments. I believe it has 3 or 4 positions. Check out the video at 1:13 mins in.

I have an Mk1 Mx5 and my popup lights were working fine till last week, were only one (drivers side) comes up. I can pop the hood and fiddle with the manual light raiser and then it starts to work but its...

Lubricate all the rods and connections you have so there is not as much friction.

The headlights in a Mazda Miata are generally of two types. Some Miatas use the factory "flip up" style headlights, where a motor raises and lowers the headlight assembly out of the front bumper area. When this motor fails or when the headlights are not working properly, you'll need to replace the failed component. Replacement headlights are normally available from Mazda or from most auto parts stores if you need to replace the entire assembly. However, before you replace anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem. check for debris in the path and any loose or frayed wires.

Unfortunatly there is no adjustments, probably a weak motor.

If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the advice.

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

I need to change the lights on my mazda mx5 first reg july 2005 to left hand as i now live in france?

Buy a new pair of headlights from a French Motor Factor or from your nearest Mazda dealer and just swap them over. Then go to a garage to get the headlight beams correctly adjusted. Voila!

If you want specific instructions, then you'll need diagrams which are not available online for copyright reasons, but Haynes publish the correct manual which you can either buy new or get secondhand from online suppliers like ebay and Amazon.

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

Adjusting Headlights

Plain floor and a wall at dusk/night and start adjusting.
remember inner road side lower so no to blind upcoming traffic.
So there should be a difference officialy between right and left.
Switch around fror country on which side off the road you drive and specific legal requirements. Normally adjusting this is no big fee either.
