Question How to adjust Volvo 850 Headlights?

How do I adjust my headlights, both vertically and horizontally? What tools will I need?

Thanks in advance!

I no longer have my 850, and my memory is fading so I am not sure exactly, but I assume you need a Torx bit to align the headlights. I believe there were two adjusting points on each headlight. I usually use a wall to correct the beam-aiming angle.

See if someone else could chime in for more accurate info.

It's in the owners manual if you have access to one, I have a 960 so I can't help other than that.
