Been getting flashed at night a few times since I had my Cornfeds installed. I went to the Garage section to find out how to adjust the headlights. However when I look down into the little hole on top of the headlight assembly I don't see a phillips head screw. I see a white plastic nut mounted sideways on a long screw. In other words nothing happens when I put a phillips head screw drive down there except I feel like I am going to break off part of the plastic nut. Is it perhaps different on the 2002 which I have. If anyone has adjusted their headlights on a 2002 please help. Also any advice for adjusting the fog lights as well. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have the cornfeds and adjusted the headlight. The phillips screwdriver can work with help. I put the phillips in the hole and turn in the desired direction like the garage says to do. I also used a flat head screwdriver to assist turning the plastic black nut in front of the hole that I the phillips went in. It is a bit tedious but it works. I have to readjust them up now because I can't see far enough ahead at night.

Hate to sound like an idiot here but what exactly are you turning clockwise or counter clockwise because I can't see anything in the hole that will turn. I see what looks like 2 white plastic teeth sticking out that are part of a white washer I guess. If I try to turn those with a screwdriver I am confident they will break as they are already beginning to get messed up with the many times i have poked the screwdriver in there and have been unable to seat the screwdriver head in anything. Can you advise. Thanks.

Not sure on the 2002, but on the 2000, what you're describing is exactly what's down there. You're not turning a screw, you're spinning a gear. Use a #2 phillips, and push down kinda firmly to make sure you won't slip out.
The only other way to do it is to pull the corner lamp off, and use one wrench on the front of the unit on a little black plastic nut, and one wrench on the back of the unit, on a white plastic nut, and turn em that way. I tried it that way, and it was more of a pain, because I kept having to pull the corner lamp off if I decided I didn't like the adjustment while driving down the road.

OK thanks to both of you, i finally figured it out. Now do you remember how many clicks you turned to get them right. I did 10 clicks and then 5 more clicks and they still seem to be a little high. Just curious how many you did before you got it about right. Thanks again.

I don't have a lift installed. I was trying to adjust them up a little so I could see more of the road. Got them to a point where they're acceptable without blinding other drivers, though I wish there was just a little more forward throw to them.
