Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
There is one screw on top and one on the side of each light for adjustments
Posted on Nov 13, 2009
Hello. There are two issues here. First of all, the car garages all have a device that helps them aim the headlights properly to give you the best night vision and also to keep your headlights out of the oncoming drivers eyes. My recommendation is that you call your garage and have them adjust your headlights for you. That said, if you still wish to adjust them yourself, keep your car key on accessory and turn the headlights on...perferably in front of a building to see which headlight is off center. Then pop the hood and right behind the headlight is the bulb assembly. There are adjustment screws there to turn the headlight bulb up and down and also left and right.

SOURCE: headlight aiming too high
Make sure the bulb was put in correctly and sitting flat as bulb replacement does not require head light adjustment.Check head light bulb before attempting to adjust

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.
