13.1.13. Adjustment of headlights

The prevention

It is necessary to check adjustment of headlights each 12 months, at replacement of a headlight or after repair of a forward part of a body. It is necessary to notice that described procedure allows to adjust approximately only headlights, exact adjustment is carried out in car-care centre.

1. On the case of a headlight with not folding optical element 2 screws for headlight adjustment in vertical and horizontal planes (are specified by arrows) are provided. On a part of cars for access to screws it is required to remove a forward lattice.
2. The elementary way of adjustment consists in bunch installation on a marking on the screen on distance of 7,5 m from the car.
3. Designate a tape vertical axes of a bunch of symmetrically axis of the car. For more exact marking approach on a wall on distance nearby 10–20 see
4. Designate the bunch centres, having spent a horizontal.
5. Establish the car in 7,5 m from the screen.
6. Adjustment is carried out at normal loading of the car and a thin tank. Forward wheels should be perpendicular to a wall, the car should be on a horizontal platform.
7. Include a passing light of headlights. Stains from bunches should be on 5–6 sm below a horizontal and be on 5–6 sm more to the left from verticals. If necessary adjust a headlight, rotating screws. Include a headlight of headlights. Stains of bunches should be strictly on a vertical and directly under a horizontal.

The prevention

Precisely to expose bunches distant and a passing light in such a way it can appear impossible. In this case try to adjust more precisely a passing light with which it is necessary to go more often and on which traffic safety in a greater degree depends.

8. As soon as possible adjust headlights in car-care centre.
