    Im having trouble adjusting the vertical aim on my projectors on my drivers side headlight. The beam doesnt go any higher than three feet or so. When i turn the screwdriver it just keeps spinning with no adjustment. My passenger side works fine. Will post up pics soon

    Have you searched the site? There are lost of HID related links and advice... I don't have them so I can only suggest you search first then ask. This link might help however. Best of luck!

    If you turn the adjuster the other way, does the beam go down? If it does, you might have them mounted incorrectly in the bowls and not left yourself enough adjustment.

    I ended up taking the headlight out and screwed the adjustment tab as far as it could go and adjusted it from there and that seemed to have fixed it. I still didnt take pics of the cut off's but here a pics of the finished product.
