Quick Question... Please Help.

Recommended Posts

I got silverstars about couple of days ago, and i have noticed that the driver's side light is brighter than the passanger side. What could have caused this and how can I fix it.

Thanks in advance

If the headlights are aligned improperly it can cause one light to appear brighter...

If it is not the aim, then it may be the actual plastic lens or housing has dulled or fogged.

If they are the projector style, then it would require removing the entire headlight assembly and baking it apart so that you can get at the projector lens. Then simple cleaning of the plastic using Novus (sp?) or Mequiar's Plastic Polish.

If they are the reflector style, then try cleaning the outside of the entire headlight using Novus (sp?) or Mequiar's Plastic Polish.

good luck,

there are 2 bolts that come out of the headlamp assembly. one bolt has a white insert around it that has a R and L marked. this is the right and left rotation adjustment.

there is another bolt down and to the center line of the car that adjusts the height of the beam. counter clockwise is up i believe. there is a bubble on the assembly you can check to see if they are level while adjusting that bolt. when the bubble is centered your headlights are centered.

its easiest to adjust it while parked facing a garage or wall so you can match them up.

Thanks for all the help guys... I will give it a shot today. I did look at the bubble and they are not aligned to the "0" mark, so hopefully I am able to fix it.
