  1. Draw base lines (h line and v lh, v rh lines) on the screen as shown in the illustration.

Hint:

H line (headlight height): draw a horizontal line across the screen so that it passes through the center marks. The h line should be at the same height as the headlight bulb center marks of the lo beam headlights.

V lh line, v rh line (center mark position of lh and rh headlights): draw 2 vertical lines so that they intersect the h line at each center mark.

  1. Inspect headlight aiming

  1. Choose a headlight to inspect first. Cover or disconnect the connector of the other headlight to prevent light from that headlight from affecting the headlight aiming inspection.

Hint:

When checking the aim of the hi beam bulb, cover the lo beam bulb or disconnect the connector.

Notice:

Do not keep the headlight covered for more than 3 minutes. The headlight lens is made of synthetic resin, and may easily melt or be damaged due to heat.

  1. Start the engine.

Notice:

Engine speed must be 1,500 rpm or more.

  1. Turn on the headlights and make sure that the cutoff line is within the specified area shown in the illustration.
