Headlight Alignment

Anyone know how to align the headlights on your 5th gens? Cause my bubble isn't centered in the little level. Thanx.

Hang on, you have the bubble?

Remember, you're aiming for the beam to look like this _/

Sorry I should have been more specific. I know I have to get the bubble to line up in the level, but is there anything else to look for? Like horizontal alignment? Also where exactly are the nuts that have to be adjusted? Thx guys!

Random smily of the day:

Haha. its the only 10mm nut on the back of the headlight assembly. You don't even necessarily need the ratchet. Just put the 10mm socket on there and turn it with your fingers.


This is me right now. :bored:
