I am concerned that my headlights are not aimed correctly.
How can make sure the headlights are aimed correctly?
The service manual is no help.

All I find in the owner's manual is the following...

You can adjust vertical aim of the headlight for proper alignment.
Turn the adjusting knob in or out as necessary.
Obey local laws and regulations.

I can’t remember where I read this, but what I use is to position the headlight 20’ from a wall. Measure up to the center of the headlights on low beam. On the wall, make a horizontal mark (I use painters tape) 1” below the headlight height. Aim.

I thought mine were too low from the factory. I adjusted mine using the 20' procedure. They are much better now.
