Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
I need to know the hight ,,when adjusting the headlights on my car,,for instance,, a diagraghm on how far away from a solid wall and what is the right adjustment,,,,as of now the lights shine up to far,,,can't see the road very good,,on a 2001 Grand Prix,,, Thank you
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
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.

You should be about 15 to 20 feet away from the wall.and addjust your lights so they just hit the road.
