What Is the Procedure for Headlamp Alignment?

Sheffield Tiger/CC-BY 2.0

To align headlamps, first park the vehicle on a flat surface 2 to 3 feet in front of a solid object such as a wall or fence. Turn on the headlamps, and mark the center of the beam with a cross. Back the vehicle up 10 to 25 feet. If the beams do not shine directly on the marks, loosen or tighten the screws on either side of the headlamps until they do.
