    Question how to adjust headlights on '08 wrx?

    one headlight is shines a bit higher than the other. how do i adjust them? i see a little screw on the back of the headlight assembly.. it has a philips head in the middle of a hex head bolt, t is that it?

    which way is which? is there a vertical as well as a horizontal adjustment?

    the passenger headlight needs to be adjusted up about an inch or so to match the beam of the driver side light.

    (ps, im not referring to interior push button adjustment of the lights like the STI has. im referring to manual adjustment at the actual headlight assembly)

    i posted over at nasoic and only one person responded, but he kept telling me that there isnt a way to adjust them

    Try it - if it doesn't work, then you'll need to physically change the reflector angle somehow.

    Keep in mind that the passenger side is supposed to be a few degrees higher than the driver's side, and the driver's side should be below eye-level :P
