Adjusting headlights on 05 f250??

Howdy!!
Ive got an 05 f250 powerstroke. The headlights on it seem to be angled downwards too far. Does anybody know how to angle these bad boys up a degree or so?? I hate to pay the dealership the big $$ to do this. Thanks in advance!!

Most of the time its not to expensive to have the head lamps adjusted. A lot of state inspectors will do it while inspecting your vehicle. Its worth having a aimer attached to get the correct angle.

Just find a flat level dark road and adjust them like you want them. Your manual should tell you how. I am sure someone will pipe in with locations for adjustment screws.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Re: Adjusting headlights on 05 f250??

05s and up have a external torx screw on the top rear of the light housing. The torx size is E5. You will have to get this size off a tool truck and will have to pay around $10 for the one bit. You can find size E6 at auto parts stores for a couple of bucks. It will work since there isnt much tension on the screw. Ive also used a pair of duck nose pliers on my own, just dont round it off.

A 5/32" socket will work on that adjustment screw as well....
