On the bottom of the headlamp is a Torx 27 screw connected to a metal plate. Loosen this screw and you can rotate the headlamp to adjust its vertical aim. There are two more screws you can get too by sticking a Torx 27 driver into the holes on the front fairing bracket.

Tracing down a short causing my dash lights and my tail lights to not work after a near lightning strike ?


The running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.The brake lights and turn signals are on their own circuit.You need to use a 12v test light to see where the circuit is broken,starting at the fuse,then the headlight switch,then the dash harness.(If the headlights work,you at least know the headlight switch is getting power).

How to Adjust a Mercedes' Headlights

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.

Things You'll Need
  • ratchet set
  • 1/4-inch screwdriver, at least 8 inches long
  • flashlight (if needed)
Show More Instructions
    • 1 Open the hood and prop it up.
    • 2 Remove components if necessary to allow access to the left/right and up/down adjustment knobs. They are on top of the rear side of the headlight. The upper knob adjusts the beam to the left and right. The lower knob controls up/down adjustments.
    • 3 Park with the passenger side of the car parallel to a solid fence or wall and about four feet from it. When there is dim light or darkness, turn on the lights and use your screwdriver to adjust the up/down knob on the passenger-side headlight until the light beam is parallel to the ground (you can see the beam of light against the surface of the wall).
    • 4 Turn the car so that it faces the wall approximately one car length away. Adjust the up/down knob on the driver-side headlight until it is at the same level as the passenger side headlight. Then adjust both sides until the small groove on top of the beam cutoff is directly in front of the light.
    • 5 Reinstall any components that you removed. Close the hood.
Tips & Warnings
  • This is method is generic for Mercedes models. Some may differ, as there are many models out there.

Drop the fuel pump out of the bike and drain it. You might have to buy new injectors and a fuel pump. The fuel pump has a trap door to get to it - Google and download the buell factory service manual for your bike.

My headlights on my 1996 Buick Roadmaster need adjusting, do you know what adjusting screws make it go up & down or in or out? I'm having a difficult time seeing the lines on the highway. How can I...


Look for a pin on top of the headlight assembly and for another on the side of the assembly, near the mid-line of the Buick. The top pin controls the vertical alignment of the headlight, and the side pin controls the horizontal alignment.Insert the screwdriver into each pin and twist to adjust the headlight beam .Be careful not to over-tighten.Its like a screw.------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How do i adjust headlights for a 2004 toyota tacoma


older vehicles have adjustment screws accessible thru trim on front of headlights, newer vehicles have adjustment screws in engine compartment on or near each headlight assembly (usually requiring a torx screwdriver) one screw will adjust side to side and the other will adjust up and down. park vehicle level with lights on & aim at vertical flat surface 20 feet away. Cover headlight you are not adjusting so it doesn't interfere with aiming the one you are working on. Driver's side- just below height of light on vehicle and to the right of straight, Passenger side- just below annd straight ahead. Adjust at low beam. Law enforcement and DMV prefer you have this done by shop.

How do you aim the headlights


There are adjusting screws accesable from the grill on the top and outside of each headlight - you should be able to see them if you pop the hood

Adjust headlights on a 2004 Saab 9-3


Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.
