Car driving at night with bright headlights

If you start to notice that your headlights are not positioned correctly to provide a clear view of the road at night and are instead illuminating the side of the road or the tops of other cars your headlights have come out of alignment. This is common and happens over time for a variety of reasons including too much weight in the back of the vehicle or an accident that nudged the headlights out of place. The good news is that most people can re-adjust their headlights at home with the right tools and information. Learn more about how to align and adjust your Kia headlights at home below.

To adjust your Kia headlights, you will need to find the adjustment screws located near where the lights are housed. Most Kia owner’s manuals should point out exactly where the adjustment screws are on your specific model. Once you find the adjustment screws, there should be one screw that adjusts the headlight’s vertical placement and one that adjusts the headlight’s horizontal placement. Turn the screws until your headlights are correctly positioned and you should be good to go.
