TOOLS NEED TO ADJUST:

  3. Before adjusting the headlights, you will first need to snag a few measurements with the first being the distance between the center of the low beam headlights. The distance will be approximately 48.5".

  21. Do the same for the other side of the wall.



  22. Now that we have a nice template to go off of, turn on the headlights and we have noticed that our driver side is way out of alignment so we will begin with this side.

  24. Cover the side that you are not working on with something that won't scratch or mar the paint (our LMR Fender Cover works well for this).

  30. Turn the adjustment screws clockwise or counterclockwise to move the light beam (we chose to center the light beam around the crosshair on the wall and remember the low beams will use the outside crosshairs).

  32. Whenever one side is done you can move the other side so we will start on the high beams. You will need (2) covers for this since the low beams stay on whenever the high beams are activated.
