Default Adjusting the headlights

I know that there is a dial to raise and lower the height of the headlights but one of them is significantly lower than the other is there a way I can easily manually raise and lower the height of the lamps?

Not sure about the hawkeyes, but I know on my 05 STi I could if I chose to manually adjust them.

There is a dial on the back of your head light you probably have to turn with a screw driver. Make sure all your harnesses are plugged in, maybe one is unplugged and not adjusting with the controllwe

I don't know about the 02-07, but I know for sure on the 08+ right behind the headlight there is a shiny bolt, the only shiny bolt there is back there and that adjusts the headlights.

There will be a bolt/screw that you can adjust. On the Peanut model there is a bolt at the back of the headlight right next to the low beam. Should be nearly the same for the hawk

beware doing this if you don't know what you are doing

you may adjust them so that they blind oncoming traffic

don't do that

Yeah, there is. It's the same setup, I have an 04 and used to have an 06.
Just look for DIY instructions online, I believe you're supposed to line up the imprinted dot into the headlight with the wall and back the car up 25 feet and match the top of the headlight beam with that.

Thanks everyone! I'll be checking this out tomorrow to try and adjust, and will let you know how it goes.
