adjusting my damned low beams

how the heck do you guys see the level???you'd have to have X-ray vision to do that...

I tried the wall trick...but I keep turning the screw and nothing happens...driver's side low beam is way higher than passenger's side...

upon playing around with the vertical screw I only end up getting the passenger side DRL light to be higher than the driver's side...

please offer some help ...I already got copped out because of this and she noted my lisence number ..i've used up my I did not know excuse...

Re: adjusting my damned low beams

if the light isn't moving, kind of sounds like the adjustment screw on the inside has been stripped out or possibly the reflector bowl has come detached from the housing. You'll have to take apart the headlight to check these things out...

Re: adjusting my damned low beams

the adjustment screws on our headlights are notorious for stripping out since they are plastic, like brian said if you're turning the adjusters and nothing is happening then you will have to take the headlight apart to see what the problem is.

Re: adjusting my damned low beams

you can throw those bad boys in the oven and heat them up then pull them apart and fix what is broken on the inside. if you dont wanna do that than you will have to buy new ones.
