I think there should be two knobs over the top of the headlight assemblies if you pop the hood. Have you checked the owners manual on how to? I think there is a page for that...if I recall correctly.

Re: adjustbale headlights (gonefly)

Check out the stickied "How To" thread at the top of our forum and see if the pics and screw locations match your vehicle. I tried to raise my OEM HID's with no luck. The cheezy plastic screws just click, click, click and do nothing. I even removed the lamp housings to get direct access to the adjustment, still no luck in adjusting them higher.

Re: adjustbale headlights (AlaskanAWD)

The other post tell nothing of the 2008 headlights. <p>As you may notice i have an unanswered post there too. I took off my headlights examined them and could not find anything that would adjust the headlights. however there are many screws inside the projector itself. One of those may be it. <p>Nothing in the owners manual either.

On the outside of the 08 head light there should be 2 spots to fix a hex key into.<br>These are your adjustment nobs.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.trademotion.com/schematics/9/9726022.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>from MySwedishparts.com<p>parts - 18) Adjust screw Back

is this the same for an 05? Mine might as well be pointed backwards. They only illuminate the first 15 feet in front of the car and need to be raised.

Re: (Veefifty T5AWD)

tried it out and nothing. it feels like something cracks and it does spin but the headlight level does not move an inch.

I have the auto levelling xenon lights and they point straight down. Replaced a $300 level sensor that did nothing. Can't get them to come up manually either.
