2018 Hilux LED Headlight Adjustment

2018 Hilux LED Headlight Adjustment

Postby Diceman on Tue, 08 May 2018 2:57 +0000

Hey Guy's,
I just picked up my new Hilux a couple of weeks ago, and recently took it in for it's
1000km check.
While I was at the dealership, I asked the service manager if he could get the guy's in the
workshop to adjust the right headlight up slightly, as I thought it was just a tad lower than the left.
I was informed that they had adjusted it and it should be ok now.
A couple of days later, I was driving from Melbourne to Sydney and it was the first time since the adjustment
that I was going to use the headlights.
To my amazement, they were right out of wack, and I could barely see further than 15 meters in front of me, it
was just a huge black spot light they were adjusted way to low.
I have just taken it back to the dealer today to get them readjusted, and he said they were out, and he can't work out why. They have apparently been readjusted, but I am waiting for night time to try them out.
I was wondering, are the simple to adjust? I had a look under the bonnet this arvo, and I can see a little white knob with a groove in it on the back of the light. Do you adjust them from that knob, or is that the brightness control and the up and down adjustment is somewhere else?
It would be handy to know, that way I can take it out on a back road and adjust them myself.
Any help would be appreciated... :?
Cheers...
