Does anyone know how to adjust the HID headlights on the new Sienna? They are pointed too low and do not illuminate very far ahead of the vehicle. I had the same problem on my E-Class and was able to correct it with a few turns of the screwdriver. I have looked but cannot see where (if any) adjustment screws are located.

I was hoping to save a trip to the dealer.

Sienna XLE has the HID as an option (its a reflector HID's like the IS and ES). I think the adjustments should be near the rear of the headlights (doh!!). but then again, talk to a dealership, they do adjustments in the first three years for FREE!

Well thanks to everyone for their insults. Now, can anyone provide some helpful information? It seems like the whole assembly should need to move since they are not projector-type lights but I can't find anything to adjust.

I'm trying to avoid a trip to the dealer.

This is what i found out - there seems to be a headlight adjuster next to the steering wheel. Its a roller/wheel type adjuster from 0 to 5 (0 being neutral, and 5 being down about 5 degrees). Not just adjusting the brightness inside but the beam pattern..I'm not sure if this is on all models or just w/ reflector HID's

jhbhatia,

Thanks for your reply. Sure enough ours was set at 5. I had not known what that dial was for but now I do.

Thanks.
