Hi, I,would need to...

Hi, I,would need to adjust the headlights from my SSR 2004. The adjust screw in the front on the lower part of the light works fine but I would like to know how I can adjust the upper part af the headlights.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Chevrolet SSR. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

No thanks, ***** ***** for now

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

On this model there is no horizontal adjustment.If horizontal is off from what is should be a head light may be damaged or head light bracket damaged or front body damage may have occurred causing this issue here.Below are the instructions for alignment for this head light system and it shows at step 9 that no horizontal adjustment is needed or can be done.

Unfortunately that is all of the info I show on this myself here.I will have to see if anyone else here can help further.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
