    Tim, this is from the '02 Shop Manual...

    FOG LAMP ALIGNMENT
    Prepare an alignment screen as illustrated. A properly aligned front fog lamp will project a pattern on the alignment screen 100 millimeters (4 inches)
    below the fog lamp centerline and straight ahead of the lamp.

    (1) Position the vehicle on a level surface perpendicular to a flat wall 7.62 meters (25 feet) away from the front of the front fog lamp lens (Fig. 16). If necessary,
    tape a line on the floor 7.62 meters (25 feet) away from and parallel to the wall.
    (2) Measure up on the wall 1.27 meters (5 feet) from the floor and tape a vertical line on the alignment screen at the centerline of the vehicle. Sight
    along the centerline of the vehicle (from the rear of the vehicle forward) to verify the accuracy of the centerline
    placement.
    (3) Rock the vehicle from side-to-side three times to allow the suspension to stabilize, then jounce the front suspension three times by pushing downward
    on the front bumper and releasing. Measure the distance from the center of the front fog lamp lens to the floor. Transfer this measurement to the alignment
    screen and tape a horizontal line on the wall at this mark. This line will be used for up-and-down adjustment reference.
    (4) Measure the distance from the centerline of the vehicle to the center of each front fog lamp being aligned. Transfer these measurements to the alignment
    screen and tape a vertical line this distance to each side of the vehicle centerline. These lines will be used for left/right reference.
    (5) Rotate the front fog lamp adjusting screws to adjust the beam height as required (Fig. 17).

    Hey Aaron, sorry to bring back up an old How To, but I was searching through some of these and noticed your pictures that you had posted when you made the thread are no longer showing up (link to image has been removed at one point in time). Do you happen to still have those pics handy? If not i'm sure I can dig them up in my FSM, but I always have a hard time getting them to copy right from a .pdf to something I can actually use on the internet...lol.

    While on the subject I noticed the other day that my left fog is WAY off compared to the right......time to re-aim!

    I edited the post to include new links to the pictures as well as the text from the manual.

    Awesome, thanks! I was browsing through some of the old How To's the other day making sure all the images still worked....kinda defeats the purpose of a "how to" when the pics have bad links...

    Hey, great write up! I'm glad I found this. I was poking around the other day and noticed the adjustment screw, but wasn't sure if that was in fact what it is. Thanks for this post!
