there are two screws on the back...one makes it go up and down...the other makes it go left and right...they are really hard to get to installed unless you have a flexible screwdriver...easy way is to take them out...turn the screws a few rounds then reinstall and see how they look...it is time consuming but can be done...I have HID's in mine too...

Set them on the ground, a box, etc... try to level them out as much as possible outside the car. This will also help you learn which screws do what (it's not as simple as up/ down left/right). Then you'll end up doing less install/ removal for adjustment later.

We should find the guy who designed those headlights and slap him for THAT stupid design. It is absolutely the worst idea ever to place those screws at this impossible place.
I absolutely hate that PITA to adjust them. I should re-adjust mine but i don't have the time and the place to do that shit!
I installed them the first time, tried to adjust them and was like WTF...
Almost broke my fingers trying to reach the dammit screws!
AND: remove, install, remove, install 1000 times is also a bad idea - 1st it is also PITA and 2nd thats neither good for the fenders nor for the headlights...


Hmm - you could also remove the bumper to adjust the lights...

AND why does everyone want to use these CHEAP ASS LED's for the Halos instead of CCFL halos which are 1000x's brighter. My friend has halo projectors for his IS300 ($300) and his Halos are CCFL, adjusters are on top, and projectors are better.... They look exactly like the ones we have too.

Hey guys, I just found this forum, and this particular thread. I bought my 2003 SRT a week ago today, and already had to replace the headlights. It has the same 'Halo' projector headlight assembly that I think you guys are talking about. (Really new to car lighting mods, rode motorcycles exclusively for the last ten years). What I can't figure is how to determine the correct height and angle of each light. I also noticed that the halos around the high and low beams don't stay lit as I have seen on a lot of the cars here in Sothern California.

Ah, of course. Why would they premium lighting in a headlight assembly? That would just make too much sense. So is there a way to fix that??

So it turns out that the particular brand of headlight that is on the car sells a simple bulb replacement for the halos, which is awesome.
