Headlight Aiming 07 Taco

Just recently purchased an 07 Toyota Tacoma Double cab but noticed that the drivers side headlight seems to be aimed a little lower than the passenger side.

Ive noticed that behind the headlight casing that there are 2 screws (8mm) located diagonally at each other. Ive tried adjusting both but seems that either I get the level that I desire but the light is aimed close to the middle - or I get the headlight aimed on the proper direction, but the light is aimed too low.

Any ideas about this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Since your truck is brand new, I would take it to the dealership. They should adjust them for you under warranty since it is a safety issue. Otherwise, I would have to look into how to go about that. If the dealership doesn't help, let me know, and I will look into it some more for you.

Turns out that the headlights can only be aimed vertically - not horizontally... Anywho, I got it aimed a little higher for highway driving purposes but still not aimed to my satisfaction. Ill play around with the adjustments and see the best compromise.

You can adjust horizontal and verticle. All you need is a phillips screwdriver.

Check this.

Cool, since I put on the leveling spacers, I have been getting flashed at night.
because the headlights are pointing up to high. If I click on the brights I can search for squirrels in the trees. I have been wondering how to adjust them. Thanks!

This is a great thread, turns out after my driver side when level looking at a wall is 6inchs lower than my passager side.

Those links dont take me to anything.

Can anyone share on how to adjust the headlights?
