Default Aiming/Adjusting Headlight Clarification

Hey everyone,

Just for clarification, to adjust the headlights (up/down) i put a long philips screw driver in the hole w/the up down label correct? But upon doing this i don't see a screw there for the screwdriver. BUT this is a bolt w/teeth on it. Now is that where the philips screw driver goes?

I haven't looked into it on my HCH2, but the way you describe it it's the same as on my Honda Interceptor. Can be a real pain in the #$#$

If you lights are not adjusted correctly, take it to Honda - your car has a warranty, doesn't it?

Here is the correct way to do it. Or at least the way I did it. That wheel with teeth has a bolt. Make suer its night out, turn on your lights, preferably against a wall. Turn the bolt with a wrench or socket, whatever you choose, and you will see the lights either lower or raise (can't remember which way does what). I lowered mine, I actually like them much more lowered.
