08 headlight adjustment

In the old days to legally adjust a headlight you had to be licensed to do it. It's not required anymore. PLEASE USE CAUTION!

I don't want my family hurt by your actions! I'm sure no one else does either!

Maladjusted headlights are dangerous for both the driver & the other people on the road!!!!!

Yes, horizontally mounted.. FYI, you have to remove the airbox completely to gain access to the driver's side adjustment bolt. Wasnt a big deal, it took an extra 10 mins.

I didn't need to remove the airbox. I had a LONG screwdriver to reach down there.

I don't think it's much different for a coupe.

I checked around i can't locate the screw. I guess the couple headlight is more hidden than sedan.

Quoting from the manual:

Quote:
NOTE: The R and L adjusters are not applicable for
USA models. The headlights can only be adjusted up
and down.
I see that you are not in the US so the headlight assembly is probably quite different. Look around for another adjuster.
