    Adjust headlights on 02 Camaro

    Maybe I missed it somewhere, but I can't find a thread or post on how ot adjust the headlights. Front of my car was put back together last year after a wreck and the lights seem to shine a little low to me. Bodyshop claims they are adjusted correct, but at night I outdrive the lights at about 35mph.
    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

    There's a screw on the top of the headlight housing that adjusts height.

    Should be 2 screws, one for up/down/ the other for left/right. Torque bits/star shaped aren't they?

    Torque bit, one on top, one one the side. I drove a truck/suv for years, it takes a lot of tweaking, but you can see at night without blinding other people.

    the way i do it is I park my car like 10 feet away from a wall or garage door. I pop the low beams out 1st. I sit on the car and look at the wall. If I think they are too high I lower one side down 1st. just crank on the screw a bit until you see the light on the wall drop. Then do the other side.

    I then stand in the middle of the front of the car looking at the wall. I check to see if the lights look like they are straight. I then put my head aligned above each headlight and try to get them as center as possible in relation with the wall.
    flip to your high beams and check them out. Get inside the car again. If you think they are better take the car for a drive and look at the road to make sure they are not too low or too high. It might take a couple of trips until you get them figure out.

    ouch that sucks. the only thing I can think off is to use a bolt and nut but im not sure if it will be easy to adjust. i will have to look at my car to check what options may work. I'll look tomorrow. Did you check on ebay?
