How To Adjust And Align Headlights And Foglights




What do you think about this video?

MrTelboy1962 .: How close to the wall is close, I've been searching all day practically for the idiots guide to adjusting headlamps (yes I know my tesing station can do it cheap and correct but I would like to understand the process) EVERY thing i've looked at on the intener leaves of vital pieces of informastion. What height should the beams be, how far from the wall should the vehicle be initially sited, what, if any, should the difference be between the makes that you first make and where the beams settle after moving the vehicle. Could someone please, please, please post a simple explaination. Many thanks

David Frayer: There are special alignment tools that "real" mechanics use for this not walls, this kid has no clue of what he's doing. GO TO A SHOP AND DO IT RIGHT! STOP BLINDING PEOPLE!

suckafish4x4: NEVER EVER EVER stick HID in a standard reflector headlight. You need projectors for those. Now you are one of the morons that are blinding every one when your lights are on. almost good on the explanation of how to aim. you are missing the center lines and width. (delete your misinforming video and save some lives)

BadBoyChevy7: What's the height of the pieces of tape from the ground of both pairs 

GoProHD4Fun: You can't aim plug and play HIDs, too much glare and illegal. Do it right...

fowleriva: DUDE U SUCK AT explaining this process. god dam hears a much easier way everyone. ok pretty much all cars r the same hight ok. what u want to do is be 15-20 ft away behind another car.2 shine ur low beams then if the low beams r near the top of the bumper or a little bit above your good. then make sure your lights are pretty much on the right and left side of the bumper still cing the whole light beam

froghunter641: just an idea, I put hid lights only in the high beam housing, seem to work great. must have two bulb headlights to work,different high/low beam bulbs. when you go to low beam no glare because your running stock lights. HIDS really show up the dear on the road sides.

MikeRelvasR8: You have 2 things to do for your best: 1: Install OEM projector. 2: Remove the HID's and stick with the standard halogen headlights. The reflector headlights like your car has cannot have HID's. Look at the glare on the wall!

Ali Ghanizad: Great tutorial, helped me know how much i have to align my projector retrofits. That being said, I did a retrofit in order to get rid of that crazy glare that you also have I LOVE IT

igoreka: the bulb line is the level of your light bulbs. park your car against a wall and mark the line where your bulbs are located

TheDolphinsfan1966: After HID's for some reason they are way off..... Really, you don't know why? It's because you don't have the correct housing for the HIDs. Glare Glare Glare I hope you guys that don't spend the money on the retrofit get pulled over and fined heavily.

DobermannX2: You're a freakin' idiot.

ABeans07: HID's in stock housings = fail

moviking: Thanks man, just what I needed to know.

Antonio T Posadas: u r one cool guy man only all people think like. good job

john appleseed: Worst video I've ever seen. Save your time and don't make any more help vids. You suck at it large.

Stallion769: Dude U need PROJECTOR HOUSING! I bought Spec D Projector Housing first then bought the HID kit. Looks stunning and the Headlights LINES are VERY VISIBLE!! Aiming is sooo easy! I'll post a video after my relays come in.. I don't like using my HID's w/o the relay. It will damage my system if i too it too long.. otherwise good aiming vid.

igoreka: yes, i pulled up to the wall and made a tape on the level of the bulbs

Tat2Dragons: That's because some older model vehicles that came stock with HIDs actually used reflectors that were specifically designed for HIDs. That's the only time it's ever OK to use HIDs in a reflector housing. HIDs installed in reflector housings that were originally intended for halogen bulbs will never be able to project a proper/correct beam pattern...sorry it's just not possible.

Tristan Johnson: LOL "dont subscribe dont add this to favs"

Sean Crowell: Good video. I don't mind the things you might have left out when I could just Google the procedure.

TheSmallvillefreak: where is the Headlight Alignment screws of Toyota Mark-II 1993 model? please reply asap!!!

rnmultimedia: i wanted to ask now those are OEM reflectors? what if he put a set of black bezel Spec D euro headlights where theres less reflective surface- would those be ok for hid? or should i go projectors only?

Adam TeBeest: lol "and screw with the bulbs"

lr4iNM4kerl: HIDs in reflectors ? u suck ...

mipetateagusto: Can u give me helpful tips 2006 Toyota prius, please

megafast13: What is the bulb line?

bubba2301: NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!! NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!! NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!! NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!! NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!! NO PROJECTORS, NO HIDS!!!

charli9111: Can I ask, How close was your car to the wall when you made those tape marks and how far away were you when you adjusted the beams?

Johndoe2509: You need to retrofit some projectors.

slapoutz: ok so that tape is on the same level as the headlight right like the headlight lines up with that tape when u pull up next to it?

billmetal: Thanks this helped alot.

reidm3: jesus christ! look at all that glare!

cam94z28: I have read that for HID's you are supposed to make the adjustment at 15ft.

Scott Sams: You didn't mark left or right! This is the worst video i have ever seen, moron!

Sean Crowell: 55w hid probably should be in a projector. 35w not really. I see new cars with projectors brighter than my 35w. I seriously doubt I'd get a ticket and it would be chump change the first time.

skyclawalpha: you may not think your shining in peoples faces, but you are... reflectors aren't designed for HID lights...

Pit-Pout-Pouet: The only missing info, is the height at which you've sticked your tapes on the brick wall. You do not mention, nor the various comments...Thanks.

Nathan Howard: I hate people who say reflectors don't house HID's. I had HID's in my old geo and drove by it a couple times to see if they blinded me and they didn't. Secondly cars like Lexus is300, Infiniti j30, Toyota Prius, and more come stock with HID's. And they have reflectors stock and don't glare. Stfu. Thanks for the video though man. Helped me with my lancer.
