Insert a long Phillips screwdriver through the hole in the grille surround below the headlights and "feel" for the screw which gives the vertical adjustment. The horizontal adjuster is an 8mm hex head on the inboard side of both headlights on the back side of the rad support.

There are small adjustment levers next to the headlight housing on the 1996 Acura T.L. Loosing or tighten it to raise or lower the lens of the headlight.

If you respect others then you will go to an auto body shop and have them adjust them for you. I am sure you have had the experience of someone elses misadjusted headlights.

You can adjust the headlights on a Saab 9.3 using the switches inside of the car. There should be a function to turn the highlights on, off and bright.

try turning the screws that are located by the headlights usually on top.it should have two per headlights 1 horizontal adjust and 1 vertical adjust turn them slowly until you find your desire aiming spot.(check you vehicles manual for manufacturers specs)

There is a Philips screw that you can turn in or out, this adjusts the headlights. Or two nuts holding it in at the top.

When you have the headlights flipped up then you will see 2 holes one on the top and one on the sides. There is a Phillips screw in there that you turn to adjust the headlights.

On older models (ex my 91) there are Phillips screws on the sides on the headlights that you turn to adjust the headlights (either up or down or left or right) on newer cars (ex my 98) there are levels built right into the headlight assembly, park the car dead level with a half tank of gas and like up the marks by turning the screws that adjust the headlights

That you adjust your speed so you can react and stop within the distance lighted by your headlights.

This is how to adjust a 2000 Dodge Neon's headlights. I think it will be similar to the 1996 model. Use a Torx (or star) wrench, like an Allen Wrench but with a star shaped head. To adjust the height, there is an oval slot in the metal frame above the headlight. Shine a light down and locate the torx head screw. Winding this screw will adjust the height. To know what height to adjust them to, park on a flat surface next to a wall. Turn the headlights on to high beam and mark the centre of the beam on the wall. Electrical insulation tape is good for this. Then roll the car back 10 feet and put the brake back on. Now adjust the headlights to point at the mark you just made on the wall. Usually you need to point them about half an inch lower when 10 feet back. There are similar torx screws that adjust the sideways direction of the lights. They are a few inches to the side and below the vertical adjustment screws. Good Luck. -Phil

open hood. On top of each headlight there is an adjustment screw. Turn it either way to lower/raise the headlight
