How to align the headlights?

The custom headlights take the same adjustment as the original headlights thanks to the projectors being mounted to the buck reflector. Simply turn counterclockwise to go up or clockwise to go down on the alignment mechanisms. Some vehicle’s mechanisms are backwards.All new vehicles only allow you to adjust up / right alignment but older vehicles allow you to adjust to the sides as well. The headlights should be installed on the vehicle prior to aligning them. Do not try to align the headlights ahead of installation. Find a leveled surface with plenty of space with a wall at the end of the road that you can use to aim the headlights.

Move the vehicle away from the wall as much as you can. Cover the passenger side headlight to start working with the driver side. Find the adjuster level and using a Philips screwdriver start turning to where the arrows point as needed. Be careful don’t do it too fast and don’t max it out or it will get disconnected and the headlights will need to be reopened.
