You should have two plastic nuts on each headlamp assembly, one will be for your high beams and one will be for your low beams.

The nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail (might see holes in your rail above the headlamp unit where the screws are hidden)

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.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT that ticks pretty loud until it warms up. A few people have told me to adjust the valves. What are the specs on adjusting them?

I think the best thing to do is just try a lighter weight fully synthetic oil in it. What you're hearing is the valves sticking in oil that is not bleeding down fast enough while it is cold.

Where is the back up light switch mine went out and i need to replace it. its on a 2000 mitsubishi eclipse

The reverse light switch will be on your transmission, mst likely near your shift linkage. It will look like large fitting with a hex head for a wrench to fit on and two wires with a plug coming out of the top. When you take this out, it will have a metal ball on the end that was in the transmission. Before removing it though, you may want to put a jumper wire across the two wires that plug into it and check the reverse lights. If they come on then, it is the switch, if not, you have a problem somewhere else. Let me know if this helps :)

Dim headlights

check to see if a wire is grounded or the connection at the base of your head lights. Try pushing or wiggling around the wires.
