Customer Question
I have taken my...

I have taken my 2001 Nissen Altima to 2 different places, spent over $250 and they stated they did not have the tools to adjust the headlights

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Everything works, bulbs and fuses, it is just the adjustment of the beam

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?

Once again, have taken it to two different mechanic's. One stated I have to take off the bumper? Makes no sense.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that would be all thank you.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
