Nowadays, many drivers are ignorant of the standard adjustment of headlights, which can cause the height of the headlights to be too high, affecting the vision of other drivers driving at night. You should know that when you drive on the road at night, you often despise those bad drivers who use high beams indiscriminately, in fact, the height of the jeep wrangler headlight is too high for the cars coming from the opposite direction, which is actually no less harmful than high beams. It is a well-known fact that high beam is harmful to people and the correct use of lights is also the most basic quality of drivers. It is also the most basic quality for drivers to use lights correctly. Compared with drivers who use high beam lights indiscriminately, it is even more annoying for drivers to adjust lights indiscriminately so that low beam lights become "high beam lights".

So the headlight height adjustment of the car is very important, for the general set in the car with headlight height adjustment will have four gears of height adjustment. But for car owners, often confused about which gear headlight height, which will be described in the car's manual, but the description of the usual but difficult for many people to understand:.

1.Make sure the body is flat.

Remove the contents of the rear compartment and subtract the excess weight. Make sure the tire pressure in all tires is at the manufacturer's recommended level. If possible, get someone to sit in the driver's seat and make sure the fuel tank is half full. Also, the headlight adjustment wheel (if any) must be in the zero position

 


2.Set the car up.


Park the car on a flat surface, about 3 to 4.6 meters from a dark wall or garage door, with the front of the car facing the wall. It is best to park in a parking lot with a level surface or on a flat driveway.
Press the corners of the car several times to make sure the shock absorbers are not tilted.
Measure the distance between the ground and the 2 headlights to make sure the suspension is level.

3.Set the car up

Park the car on a flat surface, about 3 to 4.6 meters from a dark wall or garage door, with the front of the car facing the wall. It is best to park in a parking lot with a level surface or on a flat driveway.
Press the corners of the car several times to make sure the shock absorbers are not tilted.
Measure the distance between the ground and the 2 headlights to make sure the suspension is level.

 

4.make sure the 2 side lights are the same height


Place a level between the 2 middle lines and see if the heights are the same. If they are not the same height, use a tape measure to measure how high the shorter vertical line is and how much it differs from the other line. Counting up from the ground, these intermediate lines should not be more than 1.1 meters high.

 

5.Back up the car until it is 7m-6m away from the wall or garage door.


Turn off the headlights. Remove the headlight trim ring and locate the adjustment screws. They are usually attached to the headlights, however, some manufacturers place the adjustment screws in the engine unit behind the headlights. There will be a mark on them indicating which one is the horizontal adjuster (adjusts left and right) and which one is the vertical adjuster (adjusts height).
Follow the specifications in the owner's manual, some manufacturers recommend a different distance than the general specifications.
There should be a screw above the headlight to adjust the beam height. There is another screw next to the headlight to adjust the angle of the beam left and right. Some cars may use a bolt instead of a screw.

 

6.Adjust the lights on each side separately.


When adjusting and testing the headlights on one side, remember to block the other headlight with a sweatshirt or other object, otherwise it will be difficult for you to distinguish between the two lights. When making adjustments, find someone to sit in the driver's seat and work with you to turn the lights on and off.

 

 

7.Turn the screw or bolt above to adjust the beam height.


Turning clockwise should adjust the lights higher, while turning counterclockwise will adjust them lower.
Once adjusted, turn on the lights and see how the beam changes position on the wall. The strongest beam should be flush with the middle line you just marked, or a little lower.

 

8.Turn the screw or bolt next to it to adjust the left and right angle of the light beam.

Now, adjust the left and right angle of the light in the same way. The strongest beam should be focused to the right of the vertical line.

 

9.Test the adjusted headlights on the road.


Drive the car on the road and test the headlights to make sure they are properly adjusted. If necessary, you can repeat the above steps to adjust the headlights again.
