Vertical Aim Adjustment
The headlamps on your vehicle are properly aimed at the assembly plant. If your vehicle has been in an accident, have the alignment of your headlamps checked by your authorized dealer.

Vertical Aim Adjustment
  1. Park the vehicle directly in front of a wall or screen on a level surface, approximately 25 ft (7.6 m) 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 ft (2.4 m) 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. Repeat Steps 3 through 7 to adjust the other headlamp.
  1. Close the hood and turn off the lamps.
