I would like to know if anyone has experienced the following
problem with problem their HID headlights on their MO's.

When driving on a level but winding four lane divided highway
last night, speed limit 50, with no street lights or any other
vehicles ahead to guide by, I found that I wasn't able to follow
the curve of the road safely when the lights were on low beam.

The headlight angle adjustment thumbwheel was set so that
the headlights were at their highest, so that wasn't the problem.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so, investigated the
problem and or come up with any solutions, short of driving
around with the high beams on all the time. Has anyone had a
dealer readjust them, if that is possible.

Also posted this problem on FA.

My first night drive sound like the same thing you're seeing. I took it into the dealer and had them check it (along with other things). They adjusted the headlights and things are much better now. The lights are comparable to the regular halogens I have on my 4Runner.

The overdriving of the headlights problem is fixed.

I looked for and found the white plastic headlight
adjusting screws located just behind the headlight
assemblies. A common blade screwdriver or socket
can be used to turn them.

I had to turn both adjusters two full turns clockwise,
to raise my low beams. Wow! what a difference in
nighttime driving. I can still lower them if I have to
using the dash thumbwheel, but they don't seem to be
annoying oncoming traffic yet. Which is great.

Had exactly the same problem. Quick adjustment and everything back to normal.

Hi Matt and Kris,

It kind of makes you wonder why these things aren't
attended to either at the factory or at the dealer. I
mean items like the headlights set way too low, and
tire pressures up to 55 psi. We're talking safety items
here. We should not have to do it!

Regards
Geno

Kris, Life

I think that life was intended to be easy, but something went wrong with the plan. I think it had something to do with the government. Not sure yet. Still working on it.

Rainbowfarm,

I guess not only with government. Most likely with $$$. It seems to me that in our western culture we lost something – the everyday joy of life. We are constantly pursuing $$$ and perfection. We never are satisfied with anything…………

Specs for alignment?

Does anyone know what the factory (or state regs) are for aligning the HID headlights. I know they should target a standard pattern at a set distance measured by height and left/right alignment. I also want to raise my beams!

Hm.....interesting observation. I can see that the MO was dropped by 2 - 3 inches. Maybe this is the reason.
