Reading Topic: Replying to Topic 'adjusting the front lights'

I just used an allen wrench. Don't over adjust. IT WILL break and the headlight will just fall out of the bracket. I finally got mine fixed but after the initial adjustment (mine were pointing too low as well) I will NEVER touch those things again. The dealer did not charge me because I was pretty upset that the first time they weren't even checked before I drove home.

the hex socket is just like a regular socket for a ratchet but instead of having an opening to go over a bolt, it has a short hex key sticking out. just makes it a lot easier to adjust the lights if you have one, if not a standard hex key will work.

Replying to Topic 'adjusting the front lights'

sorry i didnt update this but my friend had the correct size hex key and he was able to help me with the driver side light... but when it came to the passenger side, that reservoir was in the way. he took one look and he said.. OH, a screw driver will work too.. i looked at him crazy. i was like.. i already tried that ... and then he went and got one anyways.. then he placed it into those gear like teeth of the screw and started to turn them slowly... i guess the difference in mechanical skill and know how is very different between an IT person and a Computer Engineer(my friend is CE).

so now my lights are aimed just a little higher and i can see farther ahead... i havent had anyone flash me to tell me my lights are too high so i guess i got lucky with my aim.

thanks for all your help!~
