Adjusting your Vehicle’s Headlights

Misaligned headlights make it difficult to see the road ahead, and they can even blind oncoming motorists. Follow these steps to adjust your vehicle’s headlights:

  • Take out any heavy weight from your trunk and ensure your tires are properly inflated. This starts the car in a level position.
  • If your car has a headlight-aim adjustment wheel, it should be set at zero.
  • Park 10-15 feet in front of a garage door or a wall with your headlights on.
  • Mark the beam of light coming from the headlights with horizontal and vertical lines of masking tape. It should form a +.
  • Reverse the car straight back to exactly 25 feet from the wall in front of you.
  • Turn the headlights off, then take off the trim ring from around the headlights. Now you can access the adjusting screws.
  • Adjust the horizontal and vertical bolts so they match up with the masking tape you marked on the wall.
  • Take the car out on the road and ask a friend to make sure they’re properly aligned.
