Re: aiming headlights

On the backside of the headlight assembly toward the top, there should be a positioning screw. You'll want to adjust that screw until the headlight is where you want it to be. Typically, the screw goes through a green plastic for ease of locating, but I'm not sure whether that was in effect in 02. The best way to adjust them is to park the car five feet from a wall or garage door so you can have the lights shining on the wall and make sure they're both even.

Good luck!

Re: aiming headlights

could not find the screw in back that you were talking about, it has 3 screws holding headlight unit in place and the bulb gets pluged in from back.

Re: aiming headlights

Go get a Haynes or Chilton manual- it'll tell you what to do.

Re: aiming headlights

you need a headlight adjuster kit and set it the number on the headlight for the correct aimming spot look down on the headlight bucket and you should see a small torq star rod those are the adjusting rods for the up and side movements just pay the 20 bucks at the dealer have it done right and dont worry about it
