    Anyone have issues with headlights on '01 Crewcab SR5 Tacoma not illuminating road properly?..have addressed this issue with dealership, one I trust very much, and have been told that no adjustment can be made!..lights seem to shine too high up, and not on road surface ahead..I have not altered the tire sizes..also, still have factory lightbulbs in..

    on my 01 there is a plastic screw (1" or so long) with a tiny socket head on it on the bottom left of back side the driver side light housing (if you are looking at it from behind)...turn that one way and your light should go down, and the other it shold go up...then do the same with the passenger side. i actually adjusted my light about a month ago

    Well mine is a 98 but i believe they are the same. On the back of the headlight housing (when your hood is up) there should be two studs sticking out that have (i think) 4mm socket. it's pretty small. but you can adjust your lights up and down with the top stud and adjust them in and out with the bottom stud
