Headlight Adjustment

Have a 2017 Legacy and the healdlights need adjustment. Look for the adjustment screws, but none to be found. Any thoughts?

I have the same problem. The dealer said they adjusted them but they are still out of alignment. I did not see any easy way to adjust.

I'm sure if you posted a few pics of the headlight from above and maybe behind, we'd be able to direct you in the right direction. Every light is adjustable.

The Legacy headlights are an ongoing issue. On my 2015, they are just barely above totally useless. To drive at night, I have to use either the high beams or the fog lights to be able to see anything. There is an adjustment screw on mine; try leaning in and snapping a picture of the back of the light assembly and you may be able to see it.

Here is a picture of the headlight adjustment bracket on my 2017 Legacy. This headlight needs to be adjusted up and it is already at the end of the adjustment slot. Might have to reposition the screws.

That's the headlight mounting bracket, not the headlight adjustment. The headlight adjuster is usually mounted on the headlight assembly itself and moves the bulb or reflector inside the headlight assembly. From your picture I would be looking at those 2 white "knobs" for your adjustments.

Headlight issues

Well as many of you know these issues have been a problem for sometime. I have tried all kinds of bulbs and when my driving lights lost a bulb I chose to fix it myself. Well thats weird I H3 is the same bulb that was in my low beam light in my yesterday I called Mitch Wirt at FR...told him why did they chose to use a H3 Bulb in the headlight. He said do not believe thats true...let me check...well hour later I get this e-mail with the photo attached...seems someone at the factory has been putting H3 bulbs made for the driving lights in the head light bucket. Its supposed to be a H1 Big difference now in lighting power and now have issue where the heat from the shorter bulb has ruined my adjustment ability...

I have a 2015 legacy, I checked mine today and I also have H3 bulb in headlight (low beam/driving light) and H1 in the high beams. High beams work great, low beams do not work at all. I'll change them to H1 and hope that fixes the problem. Thanks for the post, I've been watching for a solution in this forum.

H1 no difference

So I too have been watching this thread since my headlights are like having none, and finally checked my low beam bulbs - H3. I went and got an H1 and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Are they too long to reflect properly? Didn't seem to matter what adjustment I made with the screw. Also, the larger bump (nipple) on the bulb base doesn't seem to have a place to seat correctly. Are you sure a H1 is correct for the low beam?
