 PERFORMANCE ORDER

We check correctness of adjustment of headlights on an arrangement of light spots on the screen (see the drawing).
We check and regulate headlights on the flat horizontal platform. As the screen the sheet of plywood (height about 1,0 m and 1,7-2,0 m long), a light wall of the building, a collar, etc. can serve. Completely filled car with the jack, the tool and a spare wheel fixed on regular places, we put perpendicular to the screen at distance 5 m between it and headlights. We check and if necessary we bring to norm pressure in tires. We put the assistant on a driver's seat. That the body adopted the correct provision concerning wheels, we swing the car for a wing. We begin adjustment with external headlights. Chalk we mark the screen as it is represented in the drawing and. The distance between the tags put on the screen corresponding to the centers of external headlights has to be 1180 mm.
We close one of external headlights a piece of a cardboard or fabric and we turn on passing beam.

The crosswise screw-driver, rotating the adjusting screw located over a headlight, we combine horizontal border of a beam of light with the lower line on the screen.

Framework of headlights has special dredging for access to adjusting screws. If one of screws was closed – we remove a frame (see Replacement of a front grille).

Rotating the second adjusting screw located if to look on the car course, to the right of a right headlight (to the left of left), we combine the place of a break of a beam of light (the place of crossing of horizontal and inclined borders) with the vertical line of the center of a headlight on the screen.

Also we regulate an external headlight on the other side of the car.
We mark the screen, as shown in the drawing. Distance between the tags put on the screen corresponding to the centers of internal headlights, 840 mm. We close external headlights a cardboard or fabric and we turn on driving beam of headlights. Alternately closing internal headlights and rotating adjusting screws, we expose the center of beams of light as it is represented in the drawing. The screw over a headlight changes the provision of a bunch down...

... and at the left – across.
