I normally give my self a cars length from the wall and set the head lamp around 3'6". It is judgement call on your part. You want to be able to see but when you pull up behinda car your not blinding the driver in his mirror.

Can the headlights be adjusted in 2013 Camry


Yes they should be adjustable because people change tyre profiles front to rear and this alters the drive angle.The adjustment screws are in the headlamp housing behind lamps accessed from the hood/ bonnet side.you do need to do this properly so they align together at the legal height for full beam.there is plenty of online information on the correct height for full beam...once you have made sure all Your tyres are at the right pressure....park on level ground ...at least 3 meters from front of a wall ....and at right angles to the wall....measure the height to the centre of headlight to ground .......mark the right light horizontal line for correct height on the wall and make sure you put lights on full beam....they should shine slightly below (say an inch )to the marked the measurement of height of lamp on the vehicle....adjust until the right hand light horizon is an inch below...now mark vertical line to cross centre of reflected light....this will give you a register point to mark where the left light should fall ...this will be exact distance apart as on vehicle and again adjust left until it falls below 1inch of the measured height line of lamp on car......mark distance from right to left light and mark the same height in chalk....then adjust left light to pinpoint marked chalk cross.adjust the beams by turning the spring loaded screws behind the lights.once you are happy check dipped positions....on right hand drive the lights should dip below and left.left hand drive dip below and right.you probably didn't need so much info but ...hey it's free and it saves any misunderstanding.hope this is of help...please vote.thankyou.

Adjust headlight on harley ultra classic


Hi Larry, the correct procedure for adjusting a head light is as follows:
1. Verify correct tire inflation.
2. Place motorcycle on a level floor or pavement in an area with minimal light.
3. Point the front of the motorcycle towards a screen or wall witch is 25 feet from the axle of the front wheel.
4. Draw a horizontal line that is exactly the same height above the floor as the floor is to the center of the head light.
5. Have a person whose weight is roughly the same as that of the principal rider sit on the motorcycle seat. The weight of the rider will compress the suspension slightly.
6. Stand the motorcycle upright with both tires resting on the floor and with the front wheel held in straight alignment pointing forward.
7. Turn the Ignition/Light Key Switch to Ignition. Set the Light Switch on the left handlebar to High Beam.
8. Check the light beam for proper height alignment. The center of the main beam of light should be even with the horizontal line on the screen or wall.
9. Check the light beam for proper lateral alignment. The main beam of light should directed straight ahead i.e. equal area of light to the right and left of center.
10. The headlamp adjustment can be performed without removing the chrome ring. If the headlamp alignment requires adjustment use slots in the headlamp chrome ring to insert phillips screw driver between headlamp housing and rubber gasket. Turn the vertical adjustment screw as necessary to align the headlamp vertically. Turn the horizontal adjustment screw to adjust the headlamp horizontally. Good luck.

2001 HD FXD headlight adjustment








INSPECTION

Verify correct front and rear tire pressure, put the motorcycle on a level floor or pavement area with minimum light, put the motorcycle 25 ft (7.6 m) away from a screen or wall measuring the distance from directly below the front axle to the base of the screen/wall, draw a horizontal line 35 in. (0.9 m) above the floor on the screen/wall, load the motorcycle with a rider, and passenger and any cargo normally on the bike when it is in use so that the weight will compress the motorcycle suspension as it would be in normal use, stand the motorcycle upright as it would be when being ridden i.e. with both tires resting on the floor or pavement and with the front wheel oriented in straight forward alignment, turn ignition the switch ON, set the handlebar headlamp switch to the HIGH beam position and then check the light beam for proper alignment. The main beam, which is a broad, flat pattern of light, should be centered equally above and below the horizontal line on the wall or screen with the light beam pointed straight ahead and when properly adjusted the headlamp will project an equal area of light to both the right and the left of center. Adjust if necessary to obtain the foregoing light pattern and placement.


ADJUSTMENT

All Models But FXDWG

Remove the snap plug on top of the headlamp housing, loosen the adjusting nut on top of the headlamp, move and adjust the headlamp to obtain the light pattern on the wall or screen as is desired, tighten the adjusting nut being careful not to move the headlamp and then recheck the alignment and re-install the plug.

.

FXDWG Models

Loosen the horizontal adjusting bolt so you can adjust the headlamp beam side to side, loosen the vertical adjusting bolt so you can adjust the headlamp up or down, align the headlamp to obtain the desired pattern on the screen or wall, tighten the bolts and recheck the alignment and light focus pattern.

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Determine Aiming Points


Locate a vertical surface to reflect the headlights against. This can be a wall or a darkly painted sheet of plywood set up on its side.


Park the vehicle on a level surface 10 feet away from the wall or darkly painted sheet of plywood. The vehicle must be positioned so that its centerline intersects the wall or plywood sheet at a 90-degree angle.


Determine the centerline of the vehicle and draw a vertical line corresponding to it on the wall.


Push up and down on the front of the vehicle until the suspension begins to rock. Then allow the suspension to settle. This will ensure that the headlights are at the correct height.


Measure the distance between the center of the headlight and the ground on each headlight.


Mark the height of each headlamp on the wall and draw a horizontal line between them.


Measure the distance between the center each headlamp and divide by two.


Measure on the wall, starting from the centerline, along the horizontal line the distance you calculated in the above Step on either side of the centerline. The horizontal line represents the distance from the ground, and the mark you are making in this step represents the distance from the centerline of the vehicle to the center of the headlamp. Where those two lines on each side of the vehicle intersect is where you will be aiming your headlights.

Aim the Headlights Remove the four screws that secure the headlight trim bezel to the grille.


Remove the headlight trim bezel.
Turn the headlight high beams on.
Adjust the headlights. Use the adjustment screws located along the outboard side and the inboard lower corner of the headlight bucket. Adjust the headlights until the beams project directly onto the marks you made on the wall.
Push the car up and down on the front suspension until it begins to rock, then allow it to settle.
Check the headlight alignment against the marks on the wall to make sure they remain consistent.
Replace the headlight trim bezel.

I just installed the right head light on a 2000 f250. I'm trying to find the specifications on distance and height of the light beams, L &R when adjusting the lights.


Headlamp Adjustment —Screen Method Aiming NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for this vehicle and is not adjustable.
NOTE: Consult your state's vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
  1. NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters.
    Before starting headlamp assembly adjustment:
    • Check the tire inflation.
    • Check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of gas.
    • Check that the headlamps are clean.
    • Check for correct headlamp operation.
    • Check that the vehicle is on level ground.
    • If the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure the switch is on.
    • NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4 meters (8 feet) wide.
  2. Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6 meters (25 feet) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
  3. e4d4fd8.gif
    NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked by a 3 mm (0.12 in) circle on the headlamp lens.
    Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
    1. Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record.
    1. Make a 2.4 meters (8 feet) horizontal mark (masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.

d505709.gif
  1. NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern.
    Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
  1. NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
    On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern.

7ced4e6.gif NOTE: The appearance of the beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
Identify at the top edge of this high intensity area a distinct horizontal cutoff in the beam pattern. If the top edge of this cutoff is not even with the horizontal reference line, the headlamp beam will need to be adjusted.

WHAT ARE THE SPECS TO ALIGN Headlights for 2006 chevy colorado


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 support.

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.
