Post Headlight adjustment

Previous posts on this subject claim that there are adjustment screws for the headlight. I could not find any.

I took the headlight assembly out of the car and there are no adjustment points. What had to be done is a repositioning of the internal diffuser, which is very sensitive.

Question - are there more than one headlight Assembly's depending on the model marauder? I don't think so but............?

The headlights only adjust vertically, there is a small 5 MM (socket size I believe) nub sticking out to the outboard side of where the bulb is. I forget which was is up and down but it's easy to figure out once you have them aimed a white wall.

Looking down on the Passenger headlight from in front of the vehicle.


Back of the Drivers headlight


I just use a small pair of channel locks to adjust mine.

Yup, 5mm socket. Pat, park about 5' from a wall with the car on level ground. Put a tape line at about 3.5'~4' off the ground (make sure the tapeline is 100% level) use the tapeline to measure from the center of the beam (up or down) and adjust accorlingly.
