Note: The headlights must be aimedcorrectly. Ifadjusted incorrectly they could blind the driver of an oncoming vehicle andcause a serious accident or seriously reduce your ability to see the road. Theheadlights should be checked for proper aim every 12 months and any time a newheadlight is installed or front end body work is performed. It should beemphad that the following procedure is only an interim step which willprovide temporary adjustment until the headlights can be adjusted by a properlyequipped shop.\0121-Identify the exact location of the adjustment screws:\012a) On halogen bulb style headlights, theadjustment screws are located on top of the housing.\012b) On sealed beam style headlights, theinboard (vertical) adjustment screw and the upper (horizontal) adjustment screware accessible on the exterior of the vehicle.\0122-There are several methods of adjusting the headlights. Thesimplest method requires masking tape, a blank wall and a level floor.\0123-Position masking tape vertically on the wall inreference to the vehicle centerline and the centerlines of both headlights.\0124-Position a horizontal tape line in reference to thecenterline of all the headlights.\012Note: It may be 'easier to position thetape on the wall with the vehicle parked only a few inches away.\0125-Adjustment should be ,made with the vehicle parked 25 feetfrom the wall, sitting level, the gas tank half-full and no heavy load in the vehicle.\0126-Starting with the low beam adjustment, position thehigh 1ntensity zone so it is two inches below the horizontal line and twoinches to the side of the headlight vertical line, away from oncoming traffic. Adjustmentis made by turning the top (sealed beam) or inner (aerodynamic type) adjustingscrew clockwise to raise the beam and counterclockwise to lower the beam. \012The adjusting screw on the side should beused in the same manner to move the beam left or right.\0127-With the high beams on, the high intensity zone shouldbe vertically centered with the exact center just below the horizontal line.\012Note: It may not be possible to positionthe headlight aim exactly for both high and low beams. If a compromise must be made,keep in mind that the low beams are the most used and have the greatest effecton safety.\012Have the headlights adjusted by a dealerservice department or service station\012at the earliest opportunity -
