Questions about my Lude..

1) Hey guys.. i recently installed my H.I.D's on my standard light housing.. and it looks nice etc but i i have a feeling that i might be shining a little too high and disturbing on coming traffic.. is there a way to adjust the lights so that it'll shine a lil lower?

2) this is a small problem but it happens now and then.. my speedo drops to 0 sometimes when i'm driving.. this mainly happens in the morning when i first get out the house when engine is still cold etc.. then after 10 minutes or so.. it'll jump back to normal... wat might be causing this?

Any help will be appreciated.. thanks guys..

1) **** oncoming traffic.

2) VSS (vehicle speed sensor) maybe.

There's an adjustment screw at the top corner of the headlights

Re: Questions about my Lude..

It's because you're not supposed to install H.I.D.'s without either using proper housings or retrofitting projectors. It's illegal and pretty annoying to oncoming traffic.

Re: Questions about my Lude..

I have my HID's pointed a little lower then stock after installing my HID's. Doesn't look bright to me and I've never been flashed or anything from on coming traffic.

Re: Questions about my Lude..

There are actually 2 screws on each headlight. One for vertical adjustment and one for horizontal adjustment. It's not that hard to figure out.

As for your VSS, ummm...it's on the top side of the transmission, towards the back of the engine bay (firewall side). It's kinda buried under your intake and wiring harness and coolant hoses. It's a bitch to get to. lol

1>Yea....shut them off!!!!
Your headlights should have screws to adjust them with. they're usually right behind the housing.

2>Get rid of the gerbil and seap in a rabbit!!!

It's your VSS!!! For 5th Gens it's usually btwn the firewall and the motor. By the upper left side of the motor above the tranny!!! Your's should be around the same area. If not then it cant be too far from the tranny bc it relies on the tranny to determine your speed!!!
