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.

Adjust headlight beam


The Sunfire 03 to 05 has one adjustment screw at the top. The back of the headlight has a tab that has to fit into a hole in the radiator support make sure it is in there or the headlight will be loose. I found after breaking the two adjustment screw plastic brackets. Remove the parking light brace from the radiator support one screw and as you carefully slide the headlamp in while pulling out the parking light. Hook the back of the bracket on the radiator support. If you break the plastic adjustment bracket (it twists in like a headlight bulb, but you can't buy it. Thank you GM) remove the broken piece of plastic and the rubber washer and spread it with plastic epoxy sets in 5 min and full hard in 24 hours, but hard enough in one hour and you can now beat it to death and it won't break why didn't GM make it permanent?

How I adjust headlights on a 1999 grand am?


  • Determine the type of headlights you have on your car. You can only adjust composite headlights if they bolt to adjuster plates. For dual headlights, look on the headlights for four adjustment screws per side. Sealed beam units have interior adjustment screws under the hood.
  • 4 Locate your adjustment screws. On sealed beam units, you may need to remove the trim screws and pull the trim off to reveal the Torx screws.
  • 5 Begin with you headlights turned on to the low beam. Use a Torx screwdriver for sealed beam units and Phillips screwdrivers for other types of headlights.

    • Access adjustment screws through hole in lock carrier (Phillips head or socket head).
    • Turn the adjusting screws for lateral adjustment -1- and height adjustment -2- until the correct setting is achieved.
    NOTE: Where equipped, ensure equal movement/function of headlights during automatic headlight range adjustment.

    Headlight adjustment


    I dont know foe sure but most h/lights are adjusted from under the bonnet and behind the head lights there is 2 screws which lift and turn to the left or right .. so what you do is find the screws abd mark out 25 ft and that is were the h/lights should be on dip beam and in line with the car . turn lights on after doing it and then start engine and lights should brighten up ..if not alternator could have problem.

    Adjusting headlights on a 2005 ford freestar


    hello wwhampton,

    open the hood, take a close look at your headlights, if it is a headlight assembly, there are two screws with big plastic heads on the back of the assembly, these are the adjusting screws. one for horizontal adjustment and the other one is for vertical adjustment.

    if the headlight is a round or square ordinary bulb, the adjusting screws are located near the bulb itself, these are philips screws. one on the top and one on the side.

    a suggestion; when adjusting headlights, face the car to a wall about 5 ft away and adjust the headlight.

    tnx 4 using fixya.
