aiming head lights
Ive recently installed new bulbs on my 02 Celica GTS's headlights(low-beams). I read that you did not have to re-aim after changing them, but it looks like i do. I tried doin so by spinnin the little adjuster and it did nothing on either light. THe bulbs r installed correctly and everything. What should I do? also is there a lateral adjutment on such housings?

You need to be at least 20ft away from the wall you're using for aligning to see a difference. If you do it up close, you won't see any difference in height. There are sideways adjusters, but they don't need to be touched if the bulbs are installed correctly.

just sat there and turned the little knobs until almost all the little teeth were gone but I was finally able to line them up. Thanks again for all the helpful tips and everything.
