Park your vehicle on level ground with the headlights near a garage door or wall. A good distance is 2-3 feet away from the wall or door. The location must be perfectly level and flat at a distance of 10 to 25 feet away from the door or wall.
Switch on the low headlight beams and mark the horizontal and vertical centerlines of each headlight beams on the wall using masking tape. This will mark the center of each beam with a +. The marking will tell you where exactly the headlight beams should be centered from a distance.

Move the vehicle back about 10 to 25 feet away from the garage door or the wall.

Keep the headlights on the low beam setting.
Use the markings you made on the wall or garage door to, check where the light shines and see if the centerlines still match up with the masking tape marks. If the centerlines of the two beams do not align with the tape marks, you can adjust one or both sides as needed.

Make the necessary adjustments with the lights still on while watching the light beams on the wall and your marks.
Turning the top adjusting screws in a clockwise direction will raise the beam while counterclockwise turn will lower it.

Turning the side adjuster screws will adjust the lights to the left or right.

Continue the adjustments until the center of the light beams are aligned with the tape marks. Then adjust the vertical alignment of both beams slightly below the marks on the wall. This will assure that the lights are tilted slightly downward so they won’t blind approaching motorist.

The will align bot lights, the high and low sine both are connected to the same headlight!!

Changing the headlight on a chrysler 300m

Not as hard as this sounds, but not as easy as most vehicles either.

Pop open the access hole in the wheel well and remove the fascia screw that points down near the hole.

Remove the 3 plastic rivets on the top where the grill meets the cross beam

Remove the fascia retaining nut accessed through the hole in the wheel well.

Pull the fascia down and forward to open access to the headlights. It might be a little stubborn.

Remove the two long mounting screws holding in the headlamps. Careful not to strip them.

You'll have to wiggle and maneuver the headlights out. You'll have to bend the fascia away, but it's plastic and will give. It's not difficult, but it takes a little finesse.

Once the bulbs are replaced, reverse the process.
