I noticed this is 6 months old so I don't know if you have figured it out yet but heres an answer for you. On the back of the headlights there are 3 plastic heads, they turn but spray some wd40 or something on them first. You might have to take the headlights assembly out to get a good bite on them.

How do i adjust my headlights on a 1998 buick century custom? their facing down instead of straight ahead

sounds as if they were installed improperly. take them out and replace with wires pointing downward.
If the whole assemble is pointing down it is probably an adjuster screw
that is detached from the casing.

Adjusting headlights

You should not try to adjust the headlights yourself because if you get them to where they shine in other drivers eyes when going down the road you could be fined for it.If you don't know how or where the beams should shine you could make it worse,they have to be a certain hieght and a certain angle.

Headlight height for mot

Hello, If you have a State mandated headlight aim requirement, just ask at a testing facility for the specs. Usually you have the vehicle about 20-25 feet from a wall and the headlights should be no higher than 42" off the ground.
You would set the drivers side beam slightly to the right and lower than the right hand beam. This way, you do not blind oncoming cars, but can adjust the right side to view the curb farther ahead than the left.

With the new 39" high mini-compact cars, the beams would point skyward, just as a 4x4 raised suspension pick-up would point downward.

Its a case of a standard equally applied to every vehicle and not giving the best results. Myself, I adjust the righthand beam up and out so that a curb or lane marker will keep me centered in my lane.

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.

How to adjust headlights on a 1997 mitbustiti dimante

It is best to have a dealership mechanic, or a mechanic do this. However, there are (on most models) screw that you turn to adjust each side of each light. If you kneal down and look above, and beside the headlight (inside toward grill) you'll see these. It is best to do this at night, and against a dark wall or object about 50-100 feet back. Each light will need to point downward, and inward coming together (merging in the center).
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
