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.

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)

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.

SOURCE: HEADLIGHT ADJUST ON AUTOMOBILE

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 High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

2004 volvo s60 headlight adjustment - up or down. How do i do it?


There are two white plastic 'nuts' down under some holes in the black metal slam panel One adjusts the headlight up and down and the other adjusts it sideways.
Turn them very little at a time and gently.

I *think* they were 8mm, so I used an extension and a socket and adjusted them gently that way.

Headlight Adjustment


Good Afternoon. I have a 2004 S60R & had to adjust the headlights recently. The adjustment is easy, but requires a small socket wrench. I forget the exact size of the adjustment bolt, but it's close to 1/4". It's located directly behind each headlight & is fairly easty to reach. Adjust the lights at night on a flat section of road (you'll need a flashlight to see the adjustment bolt when doing this). Hope this helps. David
