Headlight aiming ???

Must I remove the grill just to aim the headlights? I don't see any adjusters accessible with the grill on..

You don't have to take the grill off. if you get level with the lights, you can see the screws at the corners of the lights you need to turn to aim them. Its also a torx head so you might have to go to homedepot to get the right tool.
EDIT: It's a torx t-15 head

exactly what ^ said.


park 25' from a wall (level ground, wall to headlight). measure 3' up the wall and place a piece of blue tape at that measurement. turning the screw counter clockwise will lower the beam pattern and clockwise will raise it. the beam pattern is set when it is just resting below the tape mark.

You are correct, except the line on the wall is to be the same height as the optical center of the headlight.
