    Re: headlights adjustments.

    Important: Horizontal headlamp adjustment does not exist.

    Adjust the vertical aim of the headlamps to the specifications required by the state and the local authorities, or as shown in step number 8.
    Rotate the headlamp adjuster (1) to change the vertical aim of the headlamp.
    Repeat the aiming procedure for the passenger side headlamp while blocking the light from projecting onto the screen from the driver side headlamp.
    Close the hood.

    Thanks, reason I asked is that the hl horizontal aim is off from when I reinstalled hl after fixing gaps.
    Pass side is ok, but drivers side is to far to the right the beams goes over the pass. Side

    Re: headlights adjustments.

    That is extreme! Probably why the gap,poor design from GM. Do you have HID? I did not see a difference in mine, I will look again on the garage wall tonight. If you have thrown yours that far off you may need a stealer to align it again. Or a shop that has the machine to level lights or a blank wall, but I assume to pass inspection you will need them adjusted to the machine.

    I know, my concern is at night , mostly I'm concern with my safety, I know other drivers see me but dr. side has a blackout area of illumination aim down to the road, & I know others see me.
    Headlights seems aligned in relation to fender, bumper, hood. Will take it all apart & reassemble..
    There are about 6 or so little hex screws that cover the acces to the hl bulbs; no hid, standard halogen; wonder if I banged the dr. side hl, try to see if the projector can be move from there before trying dealer, also thi hl has water condensation build up, car still's under warranty.

    Use the warranty, if you have condensate you have a leak, let them replace the light and they will adjust accordinly, just do not tell them you messed with it
