There are 2 adjustment screws for headlight adjustment one for horizontal and one for vertical.the other adjuster looks the same but will be on the other side of the headlight and positioned the same or in a slightly different spot.

I cannot find a screw or any adjusting knobs for my headlights. they are pointed too low. where do i find it at on my headlight?


Most Fords I've seen use a 3mm or 4mm shaft at the top of the headlights under the hood. One does the vertical, the other does the horizontal. Use a 1/4' socket set to make the adjustments.

Headlight beam direction


Park the vehicle on a level surface, with the fuel tank about 1 / 2full and with the vehicle empty of all extra cargo (unless normallycarried). The vehicle should be facing a wall which is no less than 6feet (1.8m) high and 12 feet (3.7m) wide. The front of the vehicleshould be about 25 feet from the wall:
  1. If aiming is to be performed outdoors, it is advisable to waituntil dusk in order to properly see the headlight beams on the wall. Ifdone in a garage, darken the area around the wall as much as possibleby closing shades or hanging cloth over the windows.
  2. Turn the headlights ONand mark the wall at the center of each light's low beam, then switchon the brights and mark the center of each light's high beam. A shortlength of masking tape which is visible from the front of the vehiclemay be used. Although marking all four positions is advisable, markingone position from each light should be sufficient.

Fig. The head light alignment adjusters are located on the backof the assembly. Access holes are provided as necessary-2.0L Passat GLSmodel shown


Head lamps are adjusted from above. Do the following:
1. Open the hood
2. Look on top by the head lamps you should see two service holes (oneouter and one inner) where you will see a plastic adjustment screwwhich requires a hexagon wrench or a flathead screw driver that fits. Note the outer alignment screw is the hole located on top eg. driver side head lamps outter being the hole on the right side. innerbeing the alignment screw located in the hole on the left side of thedriver side head lamp assembly.
3. Lateral adjust/ horizontal adust is the right side hole.(which way to turn I've forgotten try incremental trial and error tilyou determine which way is left and which way is moving the beam to theright)
4. Vertical adjust is the adjustment screw located on theleftside of driver side headlamps assembly from above. turn counterclockwise to raise and clockwise to drop. its been awhile so i'm notquite sure .
5. Passenger side lateral and vertical adjust is symetrical. rememberoutter hole from above is lateral adjust and inner hole to the right inthis case for passenger side is vertical adjust.

My GMC truck 1993 Sierra just had new headlights installed. But the high beams point into the trees. It seems both the high and low beam lights are in one enclosure. Can I adjust these down?


Yes you can. There is an adjustment screw at the top of each head lamp and you just turn them out or counter clockwise and the beam will come down. You may also have to adjust them side to side also. There is an adjustment screw as well.

How to set auto headlights


Ford Requires a special tool to adjust headlights, you can buy from ford or Mac or snap-on tools. Car must be level and you need it to be slightly dark outside so you can see what your doing. Adjust driver head light on low beam, as you are turning adjustment screw turn the screw for raising the head light and raise the head light up or down till it is 30 feet in front of you. you can take steps and measure it this way which would be 10 steps or ten yards on a normal person that is 5.8ins tall. then adjust the side adjuster so that when looking at the head light spot on the ground it is pointing to the passenger car side about one foot away from straight on. Meaning if you were going down the highway that the light would point down and slightly to the right not on the center road painted lines. Next adjust the passenger side to where it is the same height as the driver side, then hit your high beams. it should be aimed so that the lights do not shine into on com-ming drivers eyes. If you have a garage or a building that you can get thirty feet away and the car is level it will make it easier for you to see what your adjusting. Afterwords you may have to make a minor adjustment to both lights. I like to set them so that the passenger is slightly higher and a little to the right so you can see going down the road at night an avoid or see a deer or person to the right side of the road. Some states requires that a certified light mechanic to do this so be sure you are not voilating any laws when doing this. Thanks for using fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.

My head light are real low how do i raise them?


There are adjusting screws on the headlight mounts, three of them I think. You may need a torx or allen wrench. Shine your low beams at the garage door or something and make the adjustments. Be careful not to let the low beams shine in other drivers' eyes. When you think it is right, park at night where you can walk in front of the car 100 feet or so and see that the low beams are not too high. The driver side light should point straight ahead, the passenger side light somewhat to the right.

Headlight adjustment


the screws for adjusting the headights are right next to the lights, they are phillips heads and are for adjusting the side to side, 
the adjusting screws for the up and down, are on the bottom of the headlights, and they are a small hole in the grill trim, these lights need a pretty long skinny screwdriver with a phillips head
