Does it have the auto headlamp leveling feature?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
That I am not sure
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
How could I tell or find out
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

There are sensors in the front and rear that control the level of the lights. You would need a scan tool to check for codes in that system. Look for the headlamp aiming screws next to the light assembly if the screws are not there it is automatic.

does that look sort of like a star wheel with a screw going through it

can you access them without taking bumber asembly back off
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Probably not. Its a tight fit the way these bumpers surround the headlamps.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
ok no problem it was not difficult. im a pretty good self mechanic. as far as leveling what is your thought of an eye ball test I dont have aiming box equipment
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I assume it is an up and down adjustment only I only see one star wheel

back into the garage and close the door and level the lights on the door.
