11.30. Adjustment of headlights



It is necessary to check adjustment of headlights each 12 months, when replacing a headlight or after repair of forward part of a body. It should be noted that the described procedure allows to adjust only approximately headlights, exact adjustment is carried out in car service.

Adjusting screws of a headlight

1. Screw of horizontal adjustment

2. Screw of vertical adjustment

Scheme of adjustment of headlights

1. The line at distance from a floor to the center of headlights

2. Area of a light spot

3. The line at distance from an axis of symmetry of the car to the center of headlights

4. Distance of 7,5 m

5. Forward plane of a headlight

6. Axis of symmetry of the car

1. On the case of a headlight 2 screws for adjustment in the vertical and horizontal planes (see rice are provided. Adjusting screws of a headlight).
2. Install the car in 7,5 m from a wall.
3. Designate a tape of a cross hairs symmetrically a car axis (see rice. Scheme of adjustment of headlights). For more exact marking drive up to a wall on distance about 20 cm.
4. Adjustment is carried out at normal loading of the car and a thin tank.
5. Establish a bunch of a passing beam of headlights so that the light spot settled down 5 cm below than a horizontal and is 5 cm more right than a vertical. For raising of a bunch rotate the screw clockwise and vice versa. The same concerns adjustment to the left – to the right.
6. Turn on a driving beam of headlights and adjust a bunch so that the spot was strictly on the vertical line, directly under a horizontal.


Precisely to expose bunches of a driving and passing beam in such a way it can be impossible. In this case try to adjust more precisely a passing beam with which it is necessary to go more often and on which traffic safety more depends.

7. As soon as possible adjust headlights in car service.
