Has anyone else reaimed their lights?

I noticed my headlights are way off since I replaced them. I looked at the TSB guide. Is is really easy?

what did you replace them with? did you replace the whole headlight "capsule" or just the lights within?

after i had my accident in april i got my car back and the lights were blinding other drivers, plus one was aimed lower than the other, I used the Tech article from this site and found the silverish colored knob with toothed inner edge...sorry no pic yet...but turn it and it will correct the vertical alignment of your head lamps not sure how to correct horizontal...oh be sure you are on a flat surface and I used a brick wall so i could gage the correct level for both...use the measurement for distance from the wall provided in the tech article to ensure correct alingment..hope this helps...i will try to get a pic of the knob, but maybe some one esle can post it up faster than I...hope this helps Good Luck thumbsup

there are two headlight adjusters on both front headlights, one to adjust aim vertically and the other horizontally it is fairly easy to adjust them with a headlight aimer. take it to a certified state inspection station probably charge you no more than $25.00. if you want to do it yourself thats up to you too. hope this would help grin

If this happened right after you replaced them, chances are, they are not straight.
For some reason when I replaced mine, the right bulb would not snap into that annoying bracket correctly and it would be crooked, and not flush with the hole. After I took a flathead screwdriver to it, I got it to go in straight and attach (after about 20 minutes of fumbling with it blindly because my car was made by little Japanese men who have tiny hands and have no problems reaching their hands into the hundreds of tight spaces under my Hood.)
That's most likely your prob, just recheck your alignment of the bulb from when you put it in.
