How do I adjust the headlights on a 98 Dakota ? Is there a guide that shows a best method ? I have searched but not really found anything that clearly shows how to do this.
I recently replaced the headlight bulbs...And for the life of me I can not seem to get this dam bulbs to fit right. Should I just remove the whole assembly to do this correctly ? If so is there a guide\method on how to remove the headlight assembly ?
Thanks for any suggestions !

yes, you remove the whole assembly. there is one T-10 screw holding the marker/corner light in under the headlight. remove that, then you can get at the bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place. I believe the bolts are 10mm. I just did this to my dakota. If you remove the whole assembly and then bolt it back in, then you wont have to worry about adjusting the headlights.
If you have a haynes manual, there is a walk through on it. You should invest in a haynes or chilton manual anyway, they come in handy.

Reason: forgot something
Got it ! I just took the whole assembly out and it is much easier to fit the bulbs in my opinion. I also purchased a headlight lens restoration kit...So taking the whole assembly out will make that job much easier as well.
yeah i tried without taking it out once didn't work to well and I can never get those adjustment screws to move it just spins and my one is pointed up pretty high i know there is like a star and a torx is it the one with more things that i need to use? i'm thinking about getting the diamond headlights that you can see the bulbs in to match my corners once i get the money too but my dad and friends have told me the one side is really high and annoying
