Vic, the adjuster is either a allen key, torx, or #2 philips type bolt found close to the bolt that is holding headlight in place on inner fender rail/flange. I believe on the Impala the only adjustment is up and down of the light beam. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Usually if you pop the hood and look at the headlights there are arrows that show up/down and left/right. Screws are usually torx/stars.

If you park in front of a garage door or building you can line up the lights .right behind the headlight you will see two shafts sticking up just below the support the headlights are attached to. One will adjust lights up &down the other one will adjust side to side.

SOURCE: How to change the headlight bulb on the passenger

Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out.
Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight thru the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully (mine looks like chrome with the Chevy 'bow tie' in the center). To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - I started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it.
Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts.
Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp.

Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth - a clean sock works well.

How do you adjust headlights??


The best way to do it is to park your car in front on a garage door, a building or put a piece of plywood in front. Whichever you use, park you car at least 10 feet away; so you can tell if you are going up, down or in the middle when adjusting.
  1. Remove the four screws that secure the headlight trim bezel to the grille.
  2. Remove the headlight trim bezel.
  3. Turn the headlight high beams on.
  4. Adjust the headlights. Use the adjustment screws located along the outboard side and the inboard lower corner of the headlight bucket. Adjust the headlights until the beams are centered directly on the wall.
  5. Replace the headlight trim bezel.

How do i adjust headlights for a 2004 toyota tacoma


older vehicles have adjustment screws accessible thru trim on front of headlights, newer vehicles have adjustment screws in engine compartment on or near each headlight assembly (usually requiring a torx screwdriver) one screw will adjust side to side and the other will adjust up and down. park vehicle level with lights on & aim at vertical flat surface 20 feet away. Cover headlight you are not adjusting so it doesn't interfere with aiming the one you are working on. Driver's side- just below height of light on vehicle and to the right of straight, Passenger side- just below annd straight ahead. Adjust at low beam. Law enforcement and DMV prefer you have this done by shop.

Trying to adjust headlights on a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager


On drivers side, Look for holes in rad support above headlights and you'll see a bubble level. Behind light housing you'll find small hex, or torx head screw just left and behind bubble level area. That's Horizontal adjustment. Now go over to right about 3 " from bubble level,just past where headlight mount is attached and look down hole for another hex, or torx screw head. That's vertical adjustment. Passenger side location will be obvious after finding drivers side adjustments.

Driver side headlight does not shine as far as the passenger headlight


There are some adjuster screws on the headlight assembly that will move the headlight up and down and side to side. Park about ten feet from a wall and turn the lights on. Turn the screw until the beams are even on the wall and centered in front of and slightly to the middle of the car. Good luck.

Opel astra headlight adjustment


two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks

How do you adjust the headlight of a 2005 Honda Odyssey?


I assume you are talking about a vertical adjustment.

If so Easy enough. Park the car about 25 feet from a wall or so. This is normal range for adjustment. Turn on your low beams.

Now Pop the hood and take a look at your headlight On You will see a black rubber bump stop. This is used to adjust your hood height.

Right behind that you will see a area where you can insert a screw driver into. Turn that with the screw driver and the headlight vertical angle will change
