Default Adjusting Headlights

After the Bonne hit a deer a few years ago the body shop never put in the headlamp right. It should stay close to the lines of the hood, but it comes out to far. So I need to know what I need to loosen to move the headlamp back and forth.

Thanks.

There are two bolts atop the header panel and one down low between those two bolts (use long extension) that mount the assembly. They're 10MM, loosen them and move it around.

If you need to adjust the light pool for the headlamps then (and you will) you'll see two screws (use 1/4" nut driver) atop the assembly that move the light pool up and down and left and right. Find a dark road at night and adjust them as you like.

Beyond the adjustment Bob mentions, check to ensure the light mounting assembly looks correct. I have seen some of them in yards sticking out as you mention because the assembly is broken.
