I have a 99 crown vic Police interceptor. The headlights were fogged and i could not get them clear so i purchased new ones. I installed them and am unable to get them to aim high enough. The top adjust is all the way and if i go further it pulls through the back of the headlight. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your assistance,

Jeremy

Check the two other screws and make sure they aren't caught against the hole they fit into.

You probably have the Chinese-made copies which have plain circular plastic washers on the adjuster stalks where they butt up against the header panel. Compare them with your OEM ones which will have cutouts in the plastic washers. If this is your problem just unscrew the adjusters from your regular lights and use them instead.

Yes, unscrew the mounts from the back of your OEM lights and use them. They should not have to be aimed that much at all.
