The driver side head light seems to be pointing down at the ground about 10' in front of the car. I don't think this is normal and I want to raise the beam.
Please tell me how to do this.
Thanks,
G

I found the two knobs on the back of the unit that adjust the HL, one says UP DOWN, the other says LEFT RIGHT,, but when I turn them, the LR one moves the light up and down and the UD one does nothing.

see my post above yours for some pics that might help

if one does nothing it might be 'fixed' in the correct position

try the adjustments on the passenger side to see if the one that does nothing, also does nothing
then that is set in position already.
you do not know if oem light unit was replaced and it is defective in that regard.

Yeah I'll do that asap. But I think it only needed to move up anyway.
Thanks for your help.
Jeff, you must live on here, you are always on top of everything.

Head lights ADJUSTED

We were out last night so I took the opertuity to adjust the light for the last time.
The left beam was still pointing dawn so I creanked it up some more an got it the same level as the right one. This was in the street, but after we got in front of the garage door I moved it up a little more and it was just right.
Still could not get it to move left or right, so that's where it will stay.
Thanks for all the help.
