2008 Liberty Headlight Adjustment

I recently did a 2.5 inch lift on my 08 Lib. I need to adjust the headlights down some and looking at the assemblies, its hard to see how to turn them down. Any
suggestions or solutions would be appreciated.

I see a small screw that has L and R markings on each assembly but looking carefully they are reversed on each side of the same screw. NO up or down adjustments seem possible.

VEHICLE PREPARATION FOR LAMP ALIGNMENT


1. Check for and correct any burnt out bulbs.
2. If the vehicle is equipped with headlamp leveling, be certain that the headlamp leveling switch is in the 0 position.
3. Repair or replace any ineffective, worn or damaged body or suspension components that could hinder proper lamp alignment.
4. Verify proper tire inflation pressures.
5. Remove any accumulations of mud, snow or ice from the vehicle underbody and clean the front lamp lenses.
6. Verify that there is no load in the vehicle (cargo or passengers), except for the driver.
7. The fuel tank should be FULL. Add 2.94 kilograms (6.5 pounds) of weight over the fuel tank for each estimated gallon of missing fuel.
8. Verify correct vehicle suspension height.


HEADLAMP ALIGNMENT

NOTE: Due to the linear nature of the headlamp cutoff, a properly aimed low beam headlamp will project the top edge of the high intensity pattern on the alignment screen from the horizontal line to 50 millimeters (2 inches) below the horizontal line for domestic market vehicles, or to 125 millimeters (5 inches) below the horizontal line for export market vehicles. No horizontal (right/left) adjustment is required for this headlamp beam pattern in domestic market vehicles. Export market vehicles have a second horizontal (right/left) adjustment screw provided. The high beam pattern will be correct when the low beams are properly aimed.




1. Turn the headlamps ON and select the LOW beams for vehicles in all markets.
2. On all vehicles except those with headlamp leveling, use a screwdriver to rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw (2) on the back of the front lamp unit just inboard of the fender and forward of the upper radiator crossmember (1) to adjust the beam height as required.
3. For export markets only, use a screwdriver to rotate the headlamp horizontal adjustment screw on each headlamp to adjust the beam right or left as required.
