Stereo & Electronics - Trans am headlight help
04-26-2012, 01:20 AM
So I've owned my Trans am for a little over a year now and I've been working on it ever since and today It finally hit me that I'm pretty annoyed that my headlights aren't even! My passenger one is fine but my driver side headlight looks like its pointin towards the ground, any idea on what I can do? Any help will be great, thanks!

its just a screwdriver adjustment... park facing a wall and the top and side screw on the bezel adjust up/down and left/right

It may be the other way around. Your passenger is probably too high. The low beams point down and the high beams point up.
Its real easy to get these off on Firebirds because people mistake the adjusters for the screws that hold the bulbs in. You can take the car to a shop with professional equipment to re-align them or follow a procedure like this: http://www.coolbulbs.com/HID-VISUAL-HEADLIGHT-AIMING-PROCEDURE.pdf

That's them. You'll want to be careful on the alignment. The low beams point down on to the pavement and the high beams point straight ahead.
Roughly... The low beam should be aimed with a 2 inch drop at 25 feet.
Measure the center line of the headlight from the ground and tape a line on a wall 25 feet in front of the car at that measured height. The beam pattern on the wall should be 2 inches lower than that height.
Look at the PDF posted above for better instructions and images.
