SOURCE: head light adjustment

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.

Where, exactly, are the headlight adjusters for the drivers side headlights?


What is the proper adjustment/
Head light adjusters are part of the head light assembly and yes high and low beam are adjusted as one unit normally. Proper adjustment is done on a machine, at an equipped facility.

My 1989 gmc serra the head lights don't light the road to well is there something I can do ? different type of bulb


dull head lights cab be from several things
1-bad reflectors behind the bulbs --any yellowing, rusting or dull reflector surfaces -- replace head light assemblies
2 badly aligned head lights-- beams shining off into space instead of on the road. --- have an alignment done on the lights
3 wet roads do not reflect head lights properly so it appears that the lights are not working well--- not much to do. the light reflects forward of the wet surface and not back to the driver
4 only one head light or no main beams and running on low beams only--- check light operation and check light control module for operation

How to adj front lights


The front head light adjustment on a vehicle can be rather complicated insofar as the vehicle needs to be a certain distance from a wall or screen, and the right and left beams need to be adjusted to specifications. I would recommend taking the vehicle in to a garage for such an adjustment short of having the correct specs for these adjustments. A repair manual for this vehicle may have the head light adjustment specs.

Adjust headlights


the bulbs are pre-set in focus and if fitted correctly in the head light assembly they will be focused and adjusted correctly. Try adjusting the whole head light assembly by the 3 screws / adjusting knobs at the back of the assembly to aim the head lights correctly.

Headlight aiming too high


Make sure the bulb was put in correctly and sitting flat as bulb replacement does not require head light adjustment.Check head light bulb before attempting to adjust

02/03 C220 headlights electronic adjustment


rtcasper Clarification Request; It is the electrical adjustment (Thumb wheel Adj on facia panel) that is not functioning not the mechanical adjustment on the head lights (Plastic cross head screw adjust L/R and U/D). The thumb wheel is usually a potentiometre adjusting a control voltage applied to the head light motor. On the Merc I can't see the motor and wonder if vertical head light adjustment is vacumme operated, where the vacumme pump is located or where i can get access to the wire loom to trace it though as I don't see how to get behind the facia. ANy suggestions as to how to get to and proove which bits are working? At the moment the headlights are adjusted to point correctly by the mechanical adjustment but this does not enable me to lower the lamps easily when I put a load in the boot.

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
