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.

Height of high beam


Take your car and park it 10 ft from a wall or a building, now take a tape measure and measure 36 inch's from the ground up and draw a line so its the same width as your car front end , turn on your head light and see if center of your lights our hitting the line you just drew , if not adjust them until they do. The right side should be just to the right a bite and the left one straight a head .

In cars, you place vehicle 10 or 20 feet away from a wall and measure up from the ground with lights on and adjust the height and spread of beams to get a focal point. On your bike, I would find another bike similiar to yours and do the same thing. Just park pace out 20 steps heel to toe and make a mark on ground of front wheel and then mark beam height. Then take your bike and place it in same position and adjust accordingly.

How to adjust headlights on 2013 dodge journey


Wahoo do is pop the hood, and there should be two-three screws around the headlamp assembly. These adjust the light directions. But you'll need to pull the vehicle away from a solid wall by about ten feet I think it is, and mark off a little area to adjust the lights at the correct level. You will be able to find this at you
ocal auto parts store. I usually go to Advance Auto, or Auto Zone. They have the little kit that helps you get all the marks on the surface you are using.

Electronic height gage is reading +.001 from 4 to


Sounds like the vertical beams are no longer vertical, but have been bent a little, so the unit has to travel a little further along the beam than it travels in a purely vertical direction. I don't know what other measuring equipment you have available, but I can picture checking this with an angle plate, a dial indicator and a vertical mill. Be sure to check it's squareness front to back and side to side.

Tire ? what are the max height for this van it has 225/75r 16 now?


would be un able to give u a correct answer-if keeping a 16 rim than turn ur wheel all the way to left and measure the clearance from tire to frame than turn all the way to the right and measure which ever is smaller or if barely touching that is ur max size the 225 is the width in metric[mm] the 75 is the sidewall ratio and the 16 is rim size if u go up in size u have to worry about turn radius and what might the tire rub on so using the stock size which most of the time is close to max using stock rims-- u check and measure than if there is room u can add the measurement to width and or side ratio

How do you adjust the low beams on a chevrolet 2005 mailib max


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.
