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.

How to adjust headlights for a 2008 dodge ram 1500


Extra lights should be the same height as the main lights of the vehicle. They must go out when you dip the head lights so you will need a relay for this to happen. They must also be independently switched so that they can be turned off Adjustment ---the center of the beam should be do higher than main lights at 3 feet from the lights and should point slightly to the passenger side of the road

Where are adjustment screws on my 2002 dodge intrepid headlight?


On top of the housing of the headlight, you will see some small holes. With the use of a flashlight, look through these holes and you will see some torqux screws (T-20 or T-25 star bit). First loosen the headlight housing. With the use of the stars bits, adjust the headlight as needed and then re-tigthen the housing. You're done.

Install headlights on dodge charger


Pop the hood and find the back of the bulb you need to change and you should see a cover. Turn this cover a 1/4 turn counter clockwise and it will unlock the bulb and it can then be pulled out.

How do I remove my headlights on my 2008 dodge charger


The bulb is held in by a round screw in plastic clasp. Simply turn it counter clockwise a quarter turn & it out. Wiggle the bulb loose & unplug the wire. The headlight complete assembly is a different story & one I can't type out.

Can't adjust 2004 Ford Expedition headlight


I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.

This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.
