Vertical Aim Adjustment
  1. Park the vehicle directly in front of a wall or screen on a level surface, approximately 25 feet (7.6 meters) away.
  1. Measure the height from the center of your headlamp (indicated by a 3.0 millimeter circle on the lens) to the ground and mark an 8 foot (2.4 meter) horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen at this height (a piece of masking tape works well).
Note:  To see a clearer light pattern for adjusting, you may want to block the light from one headlamp while adjusting the other.
  1. Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood. Cover one of the headlamps so no light hits the wall.

  1. There is a distinct cut-off (change from light to dark) in the left portion of the beam pattern. Position the top edge of this cut-off 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) below the horizontal reference line.

  1. Locate the vertical adjuster on each headlamp. Use a Phillips #2 screwdriver to turn the adjuster either clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the vertical aim of the headlamp.
  1. Repeat Steps 3 through 7 to adjust the other headlamp.
  1. Close the hood and turn off the lamps.
Horizontal Aim Adjustment
The horizontal aim does not require any adjustment for this vehicle. If a fault occurs, have the system checked by an authorized dealer.
