    Headlight adjustment.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Both adjusting screws seem to move the beam up or down! how do you adjust the side to side aim?

    I'd really appreciate all help on this.

    Thanks in advance.

    there should be one for up/down movement and one for left/right. Unless the left/right screw base is stripped but it shouldn't make it go up or down.

    Jay's right.


    The screw on top adjust up & down, there is another screw on the left or right side of the light depending on which side (passenger/driver) that adjusts left or right.

    That is rather odd

    I do too But, still don't see how the lower adjusting screw could adjust up and down. Even my aftermarket headlights, the inner/upper screw adjusts up/down and the outer/lower adjusts left/right. Like you said, if it's stripped, it should just spin, not adjust up and down.

    It's a mystery
