    Can someone help me to adjust my headlights? I changed bulbs and headlamps and my lights appear to be off. I cannot find anywhere what I need to do to adjust them.
    Thanks.

    The attached document below may help in adjusting your lights.

    I noticed your truck is 1st gen. But roughly, there are two screws, one for the side-to-side adjustment and one for up-and-down adjustment.

    The picture below is from early 2nd gen Tundra. Red arrow indicates the side-to-side adjuster and his finger points to the ups-and-down adjustor.

    My 2010 adjusters are slightly different. My up-and-down adjuster is a screw type.

    Here the side-to-side adjuster on mine.

    Here is my up-and-down adjuster.

    I am not sure what the 1st gen adjusters will look like, but I am sure it's something similar.
