Question about 2008 Subaru Impreza Wrx
How do you adjust the headlights on this projection lamp Car was in an accident and they aren't right after 3 times to the shop
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.

In the U.S. the type,
adjustments, and illumination factors of all automobile lighting devices
are regulated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108. The
headlights must function and be adjusted correctly. Your high beams must
disperse their beams straight forward and low beams down and to the
right while safely providing illumination without too much or too little
glare. It is wise to check the headlight adjustment on your Mercedes at
least every year. Doing it yourself will save you time and money. It
will also make driving safer for you and others you may meet on the road
at night. All it takes is time, some basic tools and a little patience.
