1. PREPARE VEHICLE FOR HEADLIGHT AIMING

(a) Prepare the vehicle:

• Ensure that there is no damage or deformation of the body around the headlights.

• Fill the oil to the specified level.

• Fill the coolant to the specified level.

• Inflate the tires to the appropriate pressure.

• Place the spare tire, tools and jack in their original positions.

• Sit a person of average weight (68 kg, 150 lb) in the driver seat.

2. PREPARE FOR HEADLIGHT AIMING (for Using a

Tester)

(a) Prepare the vehicle for headlight aim check.

3. PREPARE FOR HEADLIGHT AIMING (for Using a

Screen)

(a) Prepare the following vehicle conditions:

• Place the vehicle in a location that is dark enough to clearly observe the cutoff line. The cutoff line is a distinct line, below which light from the headlights can be observed and above which it cannot.

• Keep a 7.62 m (25 ft) distance between the center of the headlight bulb and the wall.

• Place the vehicle on a level surface.

• Bounce the vehicle up and down to settle the suspension.

NOTICE:

A distance of 7.62 m (25 ft) between the vehicle (the center of the headlight bulb) and the wall is necessary for proper aim adjustment. If unable to secure a distance of 7.62 m (25 ft), set a distance of exactly 3 m (9.84 ft) to check and adjust the headlight aim. (Since the target zone changes depending on the distance, follow the instructions shown in the illustration.)

(b) Prepare a piece of thick white paper (approximately 2 m (6.6 ft) high x 4 m (13.1 ft) wide) to use as a screen.

(c) Draw a vertical line down the center of the screen (V line).

(d) Set the screen, as shown in the illustration.
