Position the vehicle on a flat surface at a distance of 25 feet (7.6 m) from a wall. Measure the distance from the center of the lamp to the ground and mark off the same height on the wall. For Fog Lamps, adjust them so the top of the light beam is 4 inches (102mm) below the center line mark on the wall. For Driving Lamps, adjust them so the bright spot of the beam pattern is on the centerline mark on the wall.
