12.1.18. Headlights



It is necessary to check adjustment of headlights each 12 months, when replacing a headlight or after repair of a forward part of a body. The described procedure allows to adjust only approximately headlights, exact adjustment is carried out in car service.

Screen marking for adjustment of a beam of light of headlights

1. The line at distance from a floor to the center of headlights

2. Area of a light spot

3. The line at distance from an axis of symmetry of the car to the center of headlights
Distance of 25 ft = 7,5 m

4. Forward plane of a headlight

5. Axis of symmetry of the car


2. On the case of a halogen headlight 2 adjusting screws – screws horizontal (And) and vertical are provided (In) adjustments of headlights.
3. The simplest way of adjustment consists in installation of a bunch on a marking on the screen (wall).
4. Designate a tape of a cross hairs, corresponding to the centers of headlights.
5. Install the car in 7,5 m from a wall.
6. Adjustment is carried out at normal loading of the car and a thin tank.
7. Establish a bunch of passing beam of headlights so that the light spot settled down 5 cm below than a horizontal and verticals are 5 cm more right. For raising of a bunch rotate the screw clockwise and vice versa. The same concerns adjustment to the left-to the right. Turn on driving beam of headlights and adjust a bunch so that the spot was strictly on the vertical line, directly under a horizontal.

To precisely expose bunches of driving and passing beam in such a way it can be impossible. In this case try to adjust more precisely passing beam with which it is necessary to go more often and on which traffic safety more depends.

8. As soon as possible adjust headlights in car service.
