Hello folks,
I was wondering if and how to adjust how high or low the light out of the headlight comes out. ie verticaly adjusting where the lights point.

I know on my dad's car there is a screw on top of the headlight assembly and on my motorcycle there are two screws (1 for vertical adjustment and 1 for horizontal adjustment) I can't seem to find the location of the adjustor on the Sonata.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in adavance.

Screw is on top of headlight bucket, with the hood open, in the middle between the low and high beams. You need to access it through the engine compartment not the front of the car like old school.

The screw has a knurled edge to the bottom of it.

There's a pic in the thread above.

According to how I measure, I believe the top cutoff can only be 28 inches off the ground for safety. Tested 4 different ways with my SE from a 2011 Elantra.
