Headlight Mounting Bracket Adjustment

Recommended Posts

So I got these aftermarket lights and installed them last night. The drivers side light popped in and fitted perfectly within 30 seconds! The right side would pop and lock into place, but the fit is just not right. The top of the light sticks out like 10mm. (See image below)  I must have worked on it for 1.5 hours trying different things to get it in. This bring us to my post topic..


How do you adjust the mounting bracket?

I've only been able to find a couple post about adjusting the mounting bracket with nothing more than an engineering drawing of the adjustment screws.  But how does one go about getting to the bottom of the adjustment screws?  Looks like to me that there are two ways.

1) Remove bumper, air duct, and then possibly the radiator. 

2) Remove the right wheel and then the plastic wheel well cover thing (sorry I don't know the real name lol)


Is there a better way?
