Default How Do I Adjust My Headlight

I jus recently put my CBI 5K osram in with the zkw-r lens. My question now I have a doble cutoff. I was told that I might need to adjust my lights. I have a 05 nissan max, but I don't know how to adjust them. Can anybody tell me how its done an what might be the problem?

Thanks for the help! Another question what can make the headlights get out of wack? All I did was change my bulbs an my lens. But I had to bend the metal piece to get the lens in. Do you think that could be my problem?

I bent the foreground but I tried my best to straightened back up. I have a dark spot on the driver side headlight. Can I get to the screw that brings the lights up an down without taken the bumper off? But I really don't think that will fix it, what you guys think?

This is why I suggest to dremel out the rivets that hold the foreground limiter and reinstalling it with bolts and nuts instead of bending it, it's much easier to get it back exactly where it was.

It doesn't appear that you have a double cutoff, it looks like one (or both) of your projectors needs to be rotated. Take a picture from further away so we can better see how the left and right headlights look relative to each other.

I would make sure that you seated the bulbs correctly if you have a dark spot in one light. I made the same mistake. I actually took everything apart and adjusted them only to realize the bulb wasn't seated properly. And once you take apart the projector, definitely use small bolts and nuts to put it back together. Much easier and your less likely to bend the the wrong piece.

You shouldn't have to. I would double check the bulb. Then maybe pull the projector and make sure everything is as straight as possible. Maybe take it apart to fix the bends and then use the small bolts and nuts to put it back together.
