    Headlight adjustment

    I just had the dealer say they can't adjust them which I thought was bs. Do u remember which way raises the lights? Thanks

Nothing has to be removed to do this.

    Hi, did you find out if you turn clockwise or anticlockwise to raise the lights? Thanks

    You guys are going about it wrong and risk damaging the nylon nut using a wrench on it. See the "teeth" around the nut that look like a gear? Now look directly above the gear and there is a hole in your radiator support on the pass. and drivers side. Insert a 6" long #2 Phillips screwdriver into the hole until it makes contact with the gear. You can now raise/lower the headlights by turning the screwdriver clock/counterclockwise.

    Here's a pic:

    Pictures, please.
    Both my Mazda6 ('16) and wife's Mazda3 have headlights aim way too low. Especially on the Mazda3 ('14).
