Head Light Adjustment Screw


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I want to make sure my headlights are in adjustment. I have a gen 2 truck. The adjustment screw that is coming out looks like it is a torx style. Does anyone know what that torx size could be ? Or better yet, what size socket to use ? It looks like a a 5mm socket could work but there is some slop between the socket and the adjustment screw. A 5mm socket works good with a T-30 torx. There is no slop. Any ideas on the size of the adjustment screw ? They don't make a 4.5mm socket or do they ? Any ideas on the size ?

DAVE at Deep Space Lighting has the socket size for sale.

I took a screw out of the dash of my Gen2 Volvo and placed two nuts on it so I could use a metric socket to adjust the headlights.
