Default How do i adjust the headlights on my Lexus?

I have a Lexus SC430 (probably the same headlights as other Lexus') that when i switch the ignition on the dip beam lights seem to lift on a motor, but they lift tooooo far and i am dazzling everyone in front!! How do I adjust them without taking it to a Lexus dealer so they can charge me more per hour than I would pay for a private gig by Barbara Streisand!!















Thanks everyone.

Probably any garage could make this adjustment for you.































The Lexus dealer may tell YOU how to do it for free.

Let air out of your front tyres.

check with the manual if you have one, if not get in touch with the dealers and they will send you a new manual

Crash into the back of a Toyota usually works...































Ok, I'm joking. My experience is to take it to the dealer if the job has to be done right.

on a wall use masking tape and a level to mark lines and find out the specs from your lexus dealer as to the hieght and distance apart from one another and use an allen wrench to adjust up and down and iona and out

Try stopping by and talking with the dealer. This may be a known problem which might be fixed for free. It does not hurt to talk - they don't charge you for that.

a phone call to the dealer will suffice explain the problem they will tell you the answer
