I'm sure that this is a stupid question to you guys that know everything about these cars, but i need to know. What is the right way to adjust the headlites on a 02gagt?? I have replaced both headlite blubs twice already but now i find that i have to adjust one of them. i put the lite back in it's holder just like i took it out but the lite is not where it should be. Do you use a headlite level that goes on the outside of the glass? Isn't that what the 3 nippels on the outside of the glass is for? Or do you just use the torx screws and play it by ear? Also, i broke the cheap plastic ring that holds the liteblub in place in the housing. Can i buy a replacement from anyplace but the pontiac dealer?? I don't feel like getting screwed today. thanks Panmanhd

The reason your light isnt level is because you broke the "holder". I got replacements at the dealer for $9 apiece and they are also revised so they are much thicker and wont break.

That sounds like a good way to start, but what if that don't fix the problem. How do you adjust the light? Is there a proper way to do it.
