If you own a Toyota Prius, chances are you will eventually need to adjust your headlights. While this may seem like a daunting task, it is actually quite simple. With just a few tools and a little bit of know-how, you can have your headlights shining brightly in no time.
The Toyota Prius uses what is called a projector headlight system. This means that the light from the bulb is projected through a lens and then onto the road. The projector system allows for a much more focused and powerful beam of light than traditional headlights.
To adjust the headlights on a Prius, you will need the following tools:
First, locate the two adjustment screws on the back of the headlight assembly. These screws are located just below the center of the headlight.
Next, use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the screws. Do not remove the screws, just loosen them enough so that they can be turned by hand.
Now, use the flat head screwdriver to pry up on the adjuster tab. This tab is located just above the adjustment screws. Once the tab is lifted, you will be able to see a small slot in the headlight assembly.
Insert the pencil or pen into the slot and turn it clockwise to adjust the headlight beam to the right. To adjust the beam to the left, turn the pencil or pen counterclockwise.
Finally, use the tape measure to measure the distance from the center of the headlight to the ground. The ideal measurement is between 13 and 15 inches.
If your headlights are still not adjusted correctly, repeat the above steps until they are.

Grounding type of switch is one that has a grounding wire attached to it. This grounding wire must be attached to a grounding point in order for the switch to work correctly.
