2008 VUE 2.4L
Default 2008 Vue headlamp adjustment screws location

Hello everyone. Today I changed out my driver side headlamp bulb and after replacing them I wondered where the adjustment screw was on the unit. Is it necessary to remove the unit or can it be adjusted externally while in place. I looked and looked and can't seem to locate anything that would be an adjuster. Anyone know where I should look to try and aim "down" the light a bit? Thank you for any help you can offer.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: 2008 Vue headlamp adjustment screws location

The vertical adjustment screws are hidden in a hole in the radiator support on each side. There is no horizontal adjustment. I'm not sure what tool is required to turn it. I found two manual excerpts with conflicting information. One says an E8 Torx socket is required, but another one says a regular 6mm hex socket is needed.

Thanks for the helpful reply....I did note the hole at the top of the front radiator support and will have to shine a light down there to find the adjusting screw. Makes sense now

I'm pretty sure it's the 6mm hex socket. At least, that's the same one they used on that year model Relay.

Thanks guys for all the helpful replies to my inquiry. I'll have to give the headlamps a "tune-up" adjustment. Tired of looking up at the trees while driving at night on the passenger side......
