SOURCE: how do you align headlights on ford cougar?

When you open the hood and look at the headlight assembly you will see 2 plastic gears, they take a hex tool, and the one to adjust the lowbeams is the outermost one towards the fenderwell of the car, the high beam adjustment is the one closest to the radiator.

Hope this helps.

Most Honda headlights adjust with a Phillips screwdriver inserted in a hole
in the rad support. Inside the hole is a square funnel, and a small gear is
inside that which engages the screwdriver.

Your HIDs might adjust differently, but I don't know for certain. It's
worth looking for that hole. It's about 3/8" in diameter.

most carsv nowadays are sealed beams meaning you have to replace the whole unit rather than just replacing a bulb i am not sure with the volvo but would assume this is the case

AIMING The head lamps should be aimed using a special alignment tool, however this procedure may be used for temporary adjustment. Local regulations may vary regarding head lamp aiming, consult with your local authorities.

  1. Verify the tires are at their proper inflation pressure. Clean the head lamp lenses and make sure there are no heavy loads in the trunk. The gas tank should be filled.
  2. Position the vehicle on a level surface facing a flat wall 25 ft. (7.7 m) away.
  3. Measure and record the distance from the floor to the center of the head lamp. Place a strip of tape across the wall at this same height.
  4. Place strips of tape on the wall, perpendicular to the first measurement, indicating the vehicle centerline and the centerline of both head lamps.
  5. Rock the vehicle side-to-side a few times to allow the suspension to stabilize.
  6. Turn the lights on, adjust the head lamps to achieve a high intensity pattern.

If you look just behind the headlight glass from the top, you will see two holes with 7mm hex head screws. These will adjust your headlights up, down, left and right.

Adjusting bi-xenon headlights on Volvo S40


This guys don't know what they are talking about. If you have self leveling head lights and they are way out of alignment, yes there is adjustment screws but those mess with a different light bulb (daytime running light) instead of the main bulb alignment.

So what is a man to do? go to the dealer and have them adjust them for you. Believe it or not everytime you get an aliment done you have to recalibrate your headlights because they change the way the vehicle sits. Do it enough times and the headlight will go out of wack (because of the self leveling function)


In other words, they headlights are adjusted by means of a Computer. You could do it your self but you have to buy the DICE VIDA adjustment tool and the proper software from Volvo. Not cheap, just go to the dealership.

How to adjust headlights on 2001 volvo V40


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.
