  3. 25 ft (7.6 m).
  4. Horizontal reference line.

Vertical Aim Adjustment Procedure

  1. Park your vehicle on level ground approximately 25 ft (7.6 m) from a wall or screen.
  2. Measure the distance from the ground to the center of the headlamp high beam bulb and mark an 8 ft (2.4 m) long horizontal reference line on the wall or screen at this height.

    Note: There may be an identifying mark on the lens to help you locate the center line of the headlamp high beam bulb.

    Note: To see a clearer light pattern for adjusting, you may want to block the light from one headlamp while adjusting the other.

  3. Switch on the low beam headlamps and open the hood.

  4. On the wall or screen you will observe a flat zone of high intensity light located at the top of the beam pattern. If the top edge of the flat zone of high intensity light is not on the horizontal reference line, adjust the aim of the headlamp beam.
