ATLude is on a distinguished road
Headlight adjustment

Just installed my new DEPO headlights (still owe pics!), black housing ones. Love 'em. I searched around and successfully balanced them up and down (thank you bubbles!).

Curious though, how to properly align left to right alignment? I know there's that knob on the back but how do you know how to align properly?

I know the pattern in general should have the passenger side slightly higher and a little to the right (previous car was a TSX), but what should I use as a baseline?



Thanks,

The lines on a garage door work nicely - just center the car to the door.

Re: Headlight adjustment

there really is no set rules for headlight alignment. just don't blind people. as for left and right. pretty much the same thing. just point them straight.

but yes the garage door is a perfect alignment tool. just draw and imaginary straight line from the headlight to the garage door and that's where it should be aligned.
