    Question Headlight 'Adjusting' Tricks 98-02 TA

    Hi.... I just installed some HID's Low Bean and Fogs on the 00 TA, and I tried the regular adjusting methods using the Torx screws. But no matter how it turns, I can't get them to light up the road like 'other' cars do. I realize with the position/housing/bezels there isn't much that can be done the normal way.

    So does anyone have a great tricks for this? Maybe the Headlight UP 'stop' would help, but the biggest thing I want is to get them to do is light up more towards the Center of the road in front of the car, right now, the fogs do most of that, but still not very well.

    Thanks in Advance..

    it sounds like a focusing problem, i mean the lenses aren't made for the hids. They will never focus the way a projector will. It will just spray your light all over the place, and blind the other drivers. ?

    Obviously, I had to replace the sealed Halogen light housing with a HID Housing and bulb. I've intalled these on 2 other cars and they light up the road better, those cars had the non sealed beans, but the removable halogen light bulb - a simple R&R of the Halogen bulb with the HID+ballast, but WITH the New Housing, the Trans Am Headlight should work as good, I still think it's the nature of the complete headlight assembly that is the problem (The bezel is blocking the light)(The high beam does NOT have the interference). That is why I asked for any suggestions/tricks, etc...

    Thanks

    Nothing yet, other then a post stated they spent a hour adjusting them and finally got them right, but I almost did the same...It's a bad design with the bezel, if you ask me.
