Lowering headlights

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Robert H. Grant, Sep 17, 2003.

  1. Hello,

    Some of my friends have noted that the headlights on my 240 are a little too
    high (and may dazzle incoming cas or irritate the car in front of me). How
    do you lower the headlights?

  2. Deflate the front tires 5-10PSI (as required:)

    Get some new friends!

    or check how much extra weight you have in the trunk/boot. You probably
    need to put new rear springs in as they are more than likely sagging.

    Isn't there headlight height adjustments? My friends Toyota had a drivers
    side light way out of whack, and all they had to do was adjust the screws
    back to factory spec.

  6. At the back of each headlight there should be two knows/screws one at the
    top one to the side.
    Adjusting the one at the top will tilt the headlamp up or down

    Adjusting the one at the side will move the headlamp beam from side to side.

    Having said all that they don't usually alter unless disturbed, depending on
    the age of the car the rear springs may be the problem.

    Hope this helps

  7. Well I like my beams to be slightly downwards; thanks for the advice.
