The '05 Dolphin has '98-'02 Chev. Tahoe/Suburban headlight units. When we bought the coach used & out of warranty, the right unit was loose. I took it to a NRV dealer who charged an hour's labor and a tube of epoxy to fix it and aim the lights. It is solid, but the lights are not aimed well.
It is impossible to get to the adjust screws from the front. I can see them from the back side, but I was unable to even turn one screw using a vice grip from the back, and the plastic mount appears to be broken on another.
Does anyone have a clue how to go about adjusting the lights or removing a headlight assembly completely so as to get it set up better, or maybe replace it entirely?
Maybe someone owns a Chevy with this headlight unit. How do you adjust your lights? I am guessing that National did not allow adequate clearance around the light in their cap design.

On a suburban the adjustment screws (and the pins that hold the lamp assembly in place)are accessible from the top.They are pretty easy with the hood open on a truck, but I am sure it is difficult to see on the M.H. The adjustment screws are a TORX 15 bit. The pins that hold the lamp assembly in place are L shaped,You rotate the pins to unlock and then pull up to release the lamp.

Thanks Family Time. I was looking in the wrong place, thinking the adjustment screws were accessed from the front like on my Dodges.
