there is 2 bolts in th back of the headlight.. there hard to reach but the whole process is a pain. park your car in front of a building and have fun adjusting.

there are adjusting screws you have to either pull tighter or make loser to move the headlights forward / backwards or side to side. Take a long Phillips head screwdriver and put it straight down b/t the little hole in the frame of the car (immediately after the headlight housing) (in the upper tie bar) and keep going until it touches the gears.

I think that the one on the outside more adjusts the up and down; find out by trying it. To go the opposite way use the other screw/gear, going more from the middle of the car, nearer the grille, at an angle to the headlight.

If you are standing looking at the headlights from the front of the car, point the screwdriver at about a 45 degree angle to the left and you'll find the adjustment on the left headlight (your left b/c you're looking at it from the front) close to where the light frame narrows.

The headlights on a 1998 Honda Civic use adjustment screws which are located on the side of each headlight in the engine bay. Tightening it will raise the light and loosening it will lower it.

Actually if you look at the back of the headlight you will see an arangement of platic gears ... by turning those gears you can ajust the light possition. How exactly you might go about setting it right is up to you. Cheers, JFL
