Ok so I bought projector lights (gen 4) and the left one was aimed inwards quite a bit. I returned it and got a new one today. The problem? This one is aimed inwards as well. I put my stock back in, and it appeared to be aimed inwards as well. WTF? Is there any way to move the bracket around to get it aimed right? It's a real pain in the ass and I can't figure it out

there is no adjustment for left and right on the headlight.

you can however mess around with the headlight bracket. loosen up the 4 bolts and try to move the bracket the way you want. You should be able to get a little bit of adjustment out of it that way.

thanks, oil give it a shot when it gets warmer. 4 degree wind chill is no fun. I just feel like an idiot for sending back a perfectly good headlight at my own expense

oh well, it happens. no big deal lol. If it's not off by that far I would think you can get enough adjustment out of it by messing with the bracket bolts.

It was -14 here last night and the high today was about 5 lol.

Projectors headlight can be adjusted right and left.
Stock headlight can not.
You use the adjuster screws on the back of the light.
not the gen 4 headlights. I have them myself. you can only adjust them up and down.

The bracket is slightly adjustable with the bolt holes. not much but it may be enough to get the headlight straight.

I got it to work. I had to drill new holes for the bracket to get it over enough but it's perfect now. Cosmetically it's a little off but you can't tell unless your looking for it
