How to Adjust a Neon Headlight Screwby Alibaster Smith
The headlights on your Dodge Neon can be adjusted using adjustment screws. On the Neon, there are two adjustment screws. One screw is located on the backside of the headlight housing assembly. The other screw, on some models of the Neon, is located on the inside edge of the headlight housing assembly. The screw on the backside of the headlight assembly controls the vertical adjustment of the headlight. The other screw controls the lateral movement of the headlight.
Open the hood and locate the small hole in the back of the Neon's headlight assembly. This hole will be near the top on the backside of the assembly.
Insert a cross point screwdriver into the hole.
Turn the screw inside the hole clockwise to raise the headlight and counterclockwise to lower the headlight assembly.
Locate the screw on the inside edge of the Dodge Neon's headlight assembly. Some models of the Neon do not offer a lateral adjustment. If your Neon offers a lateral adjustment, then you can turn the screw clockwise to move the headlight assembly to the left and counterclockwise to move the headlight assembly to the right.
