Asked by May 26, 2019 at 04:03 AM about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

just bought the car and it runs just fine BUT totally overlooked the headlight
angles. they are completely off. I noticed that the lights are out of adjustment
while parking in front of a building with windows. with what tools would one use
to go adjust the headlight housing up a good pinch on driver side? Do I need to
take out the battery to get those mechanisms??

You will need an allen wrench to access the adjusters. Some models have an access hole on top of the where the headlight assembly is located. Spin one way for down, one for up.
