Default How do you adjust headlight beams?

How do you raise the height of the headlight beams? Is it the screw on the top of the lights closest to the grill? I'd like to raise the low beams a little as I almost hit a dog and a opossum last night lol.

Thanks

Yes, pull your car up to a wall of some sort, side of your house or a garage door, turn your headlights on dim. When you adjust that screw you can watch your headlights go up or down. When you've got the first one where you want it just adjust the next one until the light lines up with the first one. Good luck and watch out for those critters.lol

yea... if you live on hilly roads, it's kinda scary going down a hill not knowing whats on top of the next becuase the headlights don't shine up there!!!

I was so used to my truck and being able to see everything, that when I got my mustang I layed out an opossum at 60 becuase I didn't see it until it was too late!!!!

I ran over a rat the other day... how weird is that? Big damn rat but too small to be anything else.

There is another it adjusts the side to side right behind where the lense goes back int othe body. its to the right and down of the one pictured above. you will need a 5 to 6 inch long phillips to get to it.
