View Full Version : Headlight Level Adjustment?

08-02-2007, 07:10 PM
So when I turn the white gear things on my headlights they just keep spinning and I get no adjustment. I'm pretty sure those are the adjustment screws. I don't know what the hell else they would be. I've searched and people have had similar problems, but I can't find a solution. Thanks bros.

They are indeed the adjustment screws. Unfortunately, i don't have a solution. Is it occurring on both sets of lights?

Both screws on both headlights (total=4) do absolutely nothing.

Sounds like they popped out of the housing. The other end of those twisty things are just ball joints (they pop into some sockets on the back of the adjustable part of the housing).

I would pop off the covers for the low & high beams and get a better view (yes, you'll probably have to take them off the car), and try and pop them back in. It's happened to me a couple times when I tried to adjust them too far.
