    Headlight Aim 91 Brougham??

    Unable to find any adjustment screw for headlights? Lights are aiming a little too low and would like to adjust them.

    Wondering if anyone here has done this to their 91-92?

    Thanks

    Take the headlight trim off, you should be able to see the adjusters then.

    I believe its on top of the headlight. Open the hood and look for male star screws.

    Not finding it. 90-92 had different style headlights and no adjustment screws are anywhere in sight.

    I have the 90 front clip on mine and just went out and checked. Its under the trim piece under the hood. You have to take that long plastic trim off thats between the radiator support and inside header. I was able to pull it back a little to see one of the adjuster screws. I just did mine a couple weeks ago and stopped in the middle of a side street at night to put them where I wanted.

    Found it thanks! I was able to adjust with a screwdriver torx bit without having to remove the plastic cover.

    I hope in your case they're not rusty and frozen. My 99 Eldorado's adjusters succumbed to the dreaded corrosion disease. The first time I went to aim them they wouldn't budge.
    Trying harder with more leverage on my ratchet and shiny new external star sockets I was greeted with loud snapping noises and the guts came loose, but everything spun loosely.
    I should have soaked the adjusters in penetrating oil first.
    Now I need to buy new headlight assembly's. (Very costly mistake on my part).
