Hi, does anyone know how to adjust the aiming of the output? I had a little accident with the front of the car and one headlight(original) was damage, I thought it was a good opportunity to get the aftermarket ABM projectors. The repair shop put them on for me, but now when I turn on the lights, I see a 45 degree cutoff slash shining on the wall. It didn't look right. I tried adjusting the top gear thing with a screwdriver but it didn't do anything. I adjusted the one scew that sticked out in the middle behind the lense and that only moved the aiming up and down, how do I adjust the cutoff so they would level. I believe in the back of the lightbulb, there is a reflector with cutoff, and the body shop probably didn't position correctly when put in, but if anyone know how to do it please let me know thanks.

Normally, the best way of adjusting the headlights is to project the lights on a wall. That way, you'll be able to align the one on the right, with the one on the left, and also adjust both lights downwards or upwards.

As a rule of thumb, i normally adjust the projection of the lights, to slightly below the level of the headlights themselves. Err, does that make sense to you? Please tell me if it doesnt.

Thanks.
