Can anyone tell me how to adjust head lights? (67 cougar) I don't drive her at night too often. I noticed they shine down to the ground and needs adjusted. I know about the adjusting screws.
How did the factory adjust the head lights when the car was new? I was thinking of parking her about ten feet away from the garage and then try to adjust them.

Thats the way I have always adjusted them. On any vehicle. About ten fifteen feet back from the garage door and then tweek them till they are about level with the vehicle.

They used to have a fancy little gadget for it - but the garage door technique is what I always did. Once you have a known good aim on a set use that as your guide - putting a pinstripe tape across the middle helps for reference....

here's a in depth one: http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/aim/aim.html
