Adjustment of light of headlights
It is very important that the direction of a beam of light of headlights was correctly adjusted.

PREVENTION

If headlights are adjusted incorrectly, they can blind the driver of the oncoming car, the emergency can result or it is considerable worsen visibility. Two adjusting screws with springs are provided in headlights: one from above for adjustment in the vertical plane and one sideways for adjustment in the horizontal plane.
There are several methods of adjustment of light of headlights, the simplest demands use of the screen or the light-painted wall at distance of 3 m in front of the car and an equal horizontal floor.
Preparation
Install the car on a plain horizontal surface at distance of 3 m from the screen or the light-painted wall.
Paste an adhesive tape vertically on the screen on a longitudinal axis of the car and the centers of both headlights.

PREVENTION
If the car is equipped with four headlights, it is necessary to paste four strips according to the center of each headlight and one strip on a longitudinal axis of the car.

Paste an adhesive tape horizontally on the screen through the centers of all headlights

PREVENTION
Perhaps, it is easier to define the center of headlights if to park the car at distance of several centimeters from a wall.

Adjustment
At adjustment of light of headlights it is necessary to meet the following conditions:
– the car has to be installed on the flat horizontal platform;
– the car in the equipped state: the fuel tank is filled half, in a luggage carrier a set of tools and a spare wheel;
– pressure in tires normal;
– before adjustment it is necessary to shake a car body in order that all elements of a suspension bracket rose on the places;

At first regulate headlights of passing beam: establish a zone of high intensity of lighting so that it was slightly lower than the horizontal line and was at distance of 5 cm to the right (for a left headlight) or to the left (for a right headlight) from the vertical line. Adjustment is carried out by rotation of adjusting screws (fig. 13.30, 13.31).

Fig. 13.31. Adjustment of light of headlights with removable lamps
