I don't get it. I don't see anything.

Can someone explain how to adjust/lower the headlights? I'd like to save a trip to the dealer.

I found the adjustment screw. Under the hood, behind the headlight assembly, between the two dust covers (high & low beams) there is a phillips screw. You'll need a stubby phillips screw driver.

I use a 12mm nut on a small rachet to adjust the lights. Clockwise adjusts them higher and counter lowers them. I just adjusted them recently to stop on-coming cars from flashing me at night.

I turned mine down 1 1/2 turns and that seemed to have stopped the flashing

I need to turn mine down a little this weekend. I plan on switching to H9 bulbs for the low beams and using H7 Osram Rallye bulbs for the highs.

Since this seems to be thread regarding the headlights -- I wanted to say two things.
- I got my headlights adjusted by the dealer and I still see not much difference. I have no clue the **** is wrong with my low beams but I can see anything. I have ordered some fog lights, which should be here tomorrow, so they should be installed next week some time.
- The other thing I was going to say that I will upgrade the low beam light bulbs with Phillips Clear Vision or Sylvania Silver Star or something and I will repost again and let everyone know if it was worth the effort.
Happy Motoring!
