How do I adjust the aim of the headlights?

Your headlights can be adjusted to ensure that the beam strikes the road correctly for good nighttime illumination. While the headlights were adjusted correctly when you bought the car, there are things that can throw off the aim, including:

  • Towing a trailer

  • Carrying heavy items in the trunk

Honda does not recommend adjusting the headlights on your own, as it requires not only the right tools, but also a space in which to do it properly and knowledge of proper headlight adjustment/aim.
