89 headlight adjustment
« on: January 29, 2010, 11:02:47 PM »
Having trouble trying to adjust the headlights on
my sons 89 LX 5.0. I know there are three adjustment
points but any tips on how to do it would be appreciated!

I believe on most of the late model encapsulated headlamps the adjusting screws are a reverse TORX style however a 6 or 7mm socket usually works if you don't have a reverse TORX bit. Have the car on a flat surface about 20 ft. from a wall or garage door and watch the change vertically or horizontally until you get it were you want it, hopes this helps....PS.  normally there is only 2 adjusting screws on a headlamp.
