You will need to park the vehicle on a level groung facing a flat wall about 12-15 feet behind.
Now use the setttings to set the bright light just below the headlamp straight vision and the dip to fall flat onthe ground.
There arre different settings for LHD and RHD.
Present vehicles have headlight height correction so as to postion when the vehicle is loaded ( behind) causing a upward lift in the front changing the focus.

Adjust headlights


the bulbs are pre-set in focus and if fitted correctly in the head light assembly they will be focused and adjusted correctly. Try adjusting the whole head light assembly by the 3 screws / adjusting knobs at the back of the assembly to aim the head lights correctly.

Need to adjust the low beams on my '02 Hyundai


Headlight adjustment is fairly straight forward, you will need to park the car on a level surface with a fence or wall 25 feet away and a reference point for measurements to the right or left of the car. First measure from the reference point to the center line of the car then transfer that to the wall, second, measure from the center of the car to the center of the headlights and transfer those to the wall, third, measure from the ground to the center of the headlights and transfer that to the wall. Once all of the reference points have been transferred, adjust the left (driver's side) headlight so that the most intense part of the beam is 2 inches below and 2 inches to the right of the left mark, the right (passenger side) headlight should be adjusted so that it will be 2 inches below and 1 inch to the left of the mark. If done correctly, you will have very good night vision without blinding oncoming traffic.

P.S. Please note that any heavy objects in the car will be a factor in correct headlight adjustment, have the car loaded as it will be normally used.

Left headlight (adjustment screws for right headlight are mirror image):
1 - Lateral adjustment 2 - Height adjustment
  • Access adjustment screws through hole in lock carrier (Phillips head or socket head).
  • Turn the adjusting screws for lateral adjustment -1- and height adjustment -2- until the correct setting is achieved.
NOTE: Where equipped, ensure equal movement/function of headlights during automatic headlight range adjustment.

Headlight adjustment screws


They will probably be inset adjacent to the headlight. You'll find a horizontal and a vertical adjusting screw, with small springs behind them. Some cars come equipped with a small level (like a carpenter's level) attached to the top of the headlight under the hood to help you get the correct adjustment.

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.

Headlight adjustment


I had this problem. The plastic grommet that the headlight fit into was cracked. I got a headlight assembly from CertiFit (cheaper than dealer.) Or try a junkyard.

Changed passenger side headlight bulb, now unable to adjust or align head lights


Changing the bulb should not have affected the housing adjustments.

The bulb is just inserted into the headlight housing. The adjustments on the headlight housing is what adjusts the alignment of the headlights.

Did you maybe not get the bulb not seated correctly in the socket? Or didn't get the socket not seated correctly into the housing?
