Driving at night with poorly lit headlights is never a safe bet—we’re glad you reached out.
To adjust your Honda Pilots headlights, you’ll need the following items:
  • Screwdriver
  • Cloth or towel
  • Tape
  • A wall to project the lighting on. The inside of a garage will work great.
Before you begin the adjustment, park your vehicle 15 to 25 feet away from the wall and turn on your dipped beam. Using tape, make a cross-shape in the center of the beam projected on your wall, then turn the ignition off. From there, follow the directions below to adjust your Honda Pilot headlights:
  • Open the bonnet and locate the horizontal and vertical adjustment screws for your headlights.
  • Cover the projector you’re not making a correction on with a cloth.
  • Make the horizontal correction by adjusting the screws. The most intense part of the beam should be to the right of the vertical line (of your cross) on the wall.
  • Make the vertical correction by adjusting the screws. The upper end of the beam should be level with the horizontal part of the cross on your wall.
  • Close the bonnet and check to see if the headlights of your Honda Pilot were adjusted correctly.
