The head light aim may be out of adjustment after replacing one of the head light bulbs, This can be caused by the head light assembly not being correctly installed after bulb replacement.

  • I had a headlight go out, bought a replacement bulb but 3people & myself couldn't figure how to change it. Later during an oil change I asked the guys if they wouldn't mind, but apparently they too had problems(although replaced it), cause assembly was broken, now it looks like my head light will fall out if wind blew just right(it does't tho) & improperly focused on road. How to fix this?

  • After replacing bulb the headlights on that side are aiming incorrectly - I will have to try to properly replace it.
