I am trying to lower my headlight beam. It is pointing too high and blinding drivers. Where is the adjustment for the beam height? Thanks.

Yup!! People last year were flashing me honking at me and even when I was behind people they would flip me off. I was like WTF:dunno Is there cops ahead or what. I realized that I was blinding people every where. at least people can see me:lol

I found in my service manual the page that Kevap posted and loweed them slightly. I think I need to bring them back up slighty. It is hard to tell how much you are moving them when you do it with the lights on.

Yes, the highbeams and lowbeams are, as you can see, one unit... moving them will adjust both of the lights. :D

The number 1 is for up and down and the number 2 is for left and right,they move as a unit like kevap said.


:moto:
For some dumb reason I was thinking one adjustment was to adjust the vertical lowbeams and one was for high.:dunno I never paid attention in school ether, sorry

I think some of you are retarded. *snicker snicker*

I may adjust mine lower next year, but I dont mind them "flicking". Drive notice me, and I can see great, which is more important then their comfort.
