Thank you! I just adjusted mine after I switch to HID. It's 1000X better now.

Thumbs up This post needs a sticky

I printed out this post and Dewalt's items before I did my own adjustment - these are words and pics that everyone needs to keep on hand for just such an occassion.
PLEASE STICKY MODS!

Who's being critical?

I've often wondered if visitors to this country are appalled at our rude drivers. Insurance companies should insist on the electronic adjustments, but maybe they're afraid American drivers will use their headlights as weapons.
UGH ... some jerk in a red SUV flashed his brights at me like that last week, even though I also couldn't move because of slow-moving traffic in front of me. I hate those types of drivers.

So many rude, impatient drivers on the road here.

Well happy camping DewaltDakota, I just followed your directions and hopefully when it's dark I'll notice the improvement (and hopefully no one beams me). I also tried to keep track of the screwdriver turns and it worked out to about 20 notches per gear.

Don't forget to mark a spot on the wheel with a marker pen so you know how many turns you make. I turned mine the wrong way and just counted backwards to zero.

I did the 25' away from the wall thing and watched the beam of light going up the wall (screwdriver counter clockwise raises the beam). Mine was about 4" low. Honda should creat a technicall service bulletin on this problem.

Does anyone know how to adjust the lights side to side or left and right?

I did the same. Raised it via the adjuster to what I guessed would be acceptable. Drove the car in traffic and found it to be too high. Went back and lowered it a bit until I got what I wanted. What did I want??? I wanted the headlight pattern low enough so that it doesn't shine above the car's trunk when I'm behind them. Sounds like an oddball way to set the height, but interestingly enough, the pattern is below the trunk line of the majority of stock cars. If they have their cars lowered, that's their problem.

The Helms service manual shows only one adjustment which they say is for vertical movement... no provisions for horizontal.
