has your owners manual....

but most just line up 25 foot or so from their garage and eyeball it...

on my old 03 Ex had some Piaa driving lites that I never could keep tightened down so every few months I would go out on a dark road and turn on the headlites by themselves, then the piaa's, then the fogs and tweaked them till I liked were they were....


OH, and there are probably laws against how I lined em up but never got an award for it !!!

oh and google has about 10000 entries on how to adjust headlights

There are two small bolt heads located under the hood & behind your headlight ... I think they're 6mm. One is for vertical adjustment, and the other is for horizontal.

i think they may even be smaller mate. like 3 or 4mm
and another place for a missing owners manual is in www.motorcraft.com first page near the top is a red area, click on tech. resources next page left side click on owners guides. they let you down load it for free and have then listed i think back to about 1994 or 1996.

You can buy the factory original hardcopy owner's manual and service manuals from the same place FOMOCO buys 'em ... helminc.com

Thanks guys... the owners manual says to refer to a qualified technician for adjustment. Anybody know the proper distance to use when aiming the lights?

Done... I used a T-20 bit and adjusted about 30 ft distance. Very easy to do. Thanks all!
