Park your Explorer about 20 feet away from a wall, with the headlights directed at the wall. Turn the headlights on. Measure the distance between the ground and the center of the headlights. Mark this distance on the wall with masking tape. Make two marks, one for each headlight. Open the hood and locate the headlight adjustment screw above the headlight assembly.
