Re: 4k headlight removal/adjustment.

You didn't say what year 4k you have. You refer to you headlight (singular)
so I am assuming that you have an 85 on up 4k.

Adjustment of the headlights is as simple as sticking a #2 phillips into
the grill openings around the light. You'll have to look deep inside to see
the adjustment screws.

As far as removal, there are two #3 phillips screws that attach the light
bracket to the core support, and two more underneath, (per light) which are
a real bitch to get at. I think you have to remove the grill trim pieces
that surround the light to get to the lower screws. Well, actually, you
have to remove those anyways to remove the light. (its been a while for me)

If I were you, I would get a "double square" light set and grill from an
early 4k and fit everything to your car. The later model lights just SUCK.
You can easily convert the sealed beam square lights to H4 units to get
some real light. Of course, they won't look as nice as the later headlights
do. Depends on how much you're into seeing at night.   : )
