Headlamp Aiming Instructions
[Mechanical aiming]
The headlamps should be aimed with the proper beam-setting equipment, and in accordance with the equipment manufacturer's instructions.
   
If there are any regulations pertinent to the aiming of headlamps in the area where the vehicle is to be used, adjust so as to meet those requirements.
Alternatively, turn the adjusting gear to adjust the headlamp aiming. If beam-setting equipment is not available, proceed as follows :
1.
Inflate the tires to the specified pressure and remove any loads from the vehicle except the driver, spare tire, and tools.
2.
The vehicle should be placed on a flat floor.
3.
Draw vertical lines (passing through respective headlamp centers) and a horizontal line (passing through center of headlamps) on the screen.
4.
With the headlamps and battery in normal condition, aim the headlamps so the brightest portion falls on the horizontal and vertical lines.
A : Vertical
B : Horizontal
