Re: headlight help

Open your hood. Look at the back of the headlight and you will see two different gear dails. The upper dail closest to your rad is to adjust left to right. The lower dail closest to your tire is to adjust up and down. Turn the dail with a phillips screwdriver to adjust it.

Okay, know look at the front of your headlight. If you look at the top inside corner you will see like a little peep hole with a level in side. Adjust the vertical dial until the bubble is resting in between .6 and .6.

Be sure you are on level ground.

As ridiculously easy at it sounds, it's something that not a lot of people, including myself, didn't know how to do until you just said it...and I did my whole exhaust system in my garage lol.

Make a DIY man, it'll really be helpful to people.
