so finally, after giving my car a very clean wash, i opened up the hood and cleaned up the whole engine bay area as well. now the car feels so much faster :) j/k

anyway, i took the chance and adjusted my headlight as well. i found out that the TL and CL are different, coz' the screws where you adjust the level of the lights are actually behind the headlight, so you don't really have to take away the top cover (well you might, read on).

for the pessenger side it's very easy, you just turn the screw and there you go. but the driver side is tougher, coz' it's all covered up. i popped up the cover on the driver side and i was able to turn the screw that way.

so it was easy and i adjusted it, but the funny thing was the first time i adjusted it, it looked all so good but when i left my apt, i found out i was shining the roofs of other houses instead of the road..... :D:D:D so today i re-adjusted it again and now it's all good :)

well of course there are spec on them. search on my username and among the first few posts i did someone posted a link to the correct spec.

and of course you want your left and right on the same level.

and btw, i made my headlight lit a bit higher than normal, so it looks more like bimmer and audi :)

After reading this thread this afternoon I figured I've delayed long enough tackled the job tonight on my TL-S.

I read the thread here First Thread, and another one on A-CL.com Second Thread that really helped.

But I did note a few descrepancies between all of the info. It took me awhile to find what I did need to adjust, but finally spotted the teeth on the wheel attached to the screw. The passenger side was easy, but the adjustment on mine would only take a 10mm socket - not a Phillips head screwdriver as mentioned. And strange as it sounds, I had to turn the adjuster in the opposite direction than the little U<->D symbols indicated.

The drivers side was tougher. I had to remove the battery cover and snap a hose out of it's holders to access the coolant bottle and pull it out. After pulling the inlet tube out of the top and dropping the interior hose to the bottom of the bottle, :rolleyes: I finallt got the bottle out. But there still wasn't enough room to manouver the socket, so I took out a couple of fasteners from the the plastic cover cover the top of the rad support, pulled it our of the way, and took two more fasteners out of a plastic peice running down the front of the battery. That did it, and with a minimum of skinned knuckles I got it done. Everything snapped back together tightly, and I didn't have any parts left over. :)

My teeth are still a bit sore from holding the flashlight in mouth so I could have two hands free though. ;)

This weekend I'll take some pictures to show what needs to my done. It does differ from what's been posted here.

i can vouch for what FLL Type-S said. i used a 10mm socket instead of flat head as well, and the directly is what you mentioned too. for the driver side i didn't bother to takeout the bottle, and just took off the plastic cover, and also the little colver behind the screw area.

and hehe, i hear you about the flash light. well, it helps when you have another person (in my case my gf) holding it for you :)
