How do I manually level the headlights?

You may want to adjust the level of the highlights based on the loading weight of the vehicle and the number of passengers.

  1. Locate the leveling dial on the left side of the dashboard.

  2. Press up on the button to raise the lights.

  3. Press down on the button to lower the lights.

Normally, the setting will be at zero, but when all seats are occupied, you may want to adjust the setting to one. If you have a lot of luggage, the adjustment may be at three or higher.
