2001 Tribute Headlight Alignment (horizontal) help

Postby bl1tzk1213g - December 11th, 2016, 7:01 pm

I just did a projector retrofit and everything is well. Now my right headlight i believe needs a little inward alignment (horizontal). I can only find the screws to aim up and down (vertical). Is there even a horizontal adjustment? By the way i'm new here to the forums! Here are some pics of the retrofit from Tribute LX

Nice job in the retrofit. Thevheadlight itself has adjustment screws which I believe you are talking about. Theretrofitsource has a forum called hidplanet which may be useful. They also have a bunch of YouTube how-to's that I'd say to check out. I watched one once that referenced adjustment but it's been a while.
