Hey guys, probably a stupid question but im gonna ask it anyway. I had to replace my headlight assembly on the right side of my impala awhile back and i went to aim the low beam and set it even with the left headlight. Well i did that and i clicked on the high beam and it looked like they were off a pretty good amount. Is there a way to aim the high beams? I never have seen a way before and there probably isnt but i just wanted to ask and see what you guys had to say.

thats a good question, i only know how to aim the low beams. You may want to check that the rubber grommet on the bulb isnt making the bulb not sit in flush.... that has happend to me b4... i took the old grommet off my old bulb and stuck it on the new one and viola.. prob was solved.

Judging from the pic you have for your signature you have projectors headlights? There are two adjustment screws behind each high beam just like the low beam(slightly different looking from the lowbeam ones) Cant miss them

Is it a GM or aftermarket light? Some of the aftermarket lights are impossible to aim.

There is just one adjustment. Check to see if you have the same type (make) of bulb in both high beams.

OEM lights have only up and down adjustment you can't change it side to side... once the lows are aimed the highs are as well since they are on the same adjustment they are slightly more upper left than the lows though sadly nothing you can do about it
