Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Headlamp Aiming

Headlamp aim has been preset and should need no further adjustment.

If the vehicle is damaged in a crash, the headlamp aim may be affected.

If adjustment to the headlamps is necessary, see your dealer.

Aiming the headlamps on a 2014 Chevrolet Captiva is essential for optimal visibility and safety while driving. Begin by parking the vehicle on a level surface about 25 feet away from a flat wall or garage door. Make sure the vehicle is facing the wall directly and that the tires are properly inflated to the recommended pressure.

Next, locate the headlamp aiming screws on the back of each headlamp assembly. These screws are typically accessible without removing any components but may require the removal of a cover or panel in some cases. Refer to the vehicle's owner's manual for specific instructions on accessing the aiming screws.

Turn on the headlamps to their low-beam setting and use masking tape to mark the horizontal and vertical centerlines of each headlamp beam on the wall. The horizontal line should be at the same height as the center of the headlamp lens, and the vertical line should intersect the center of the headlamp beam pattern.

Adjust the headlamp aiming screws to align the headlamp beams with the marked centerlines on the wall. The low-beam pattern should be flat and slightly downward to prevent glare for oncoming drivers. Avoid aiming the headlamps too high, as this can reduce visibility and blind other motorists.

Once the headlamp beams are properly aligned, turn off the headlamps and remove the masking tape. Test the headlamp alignment by driving the vehicle and ensuring that the beams provide adequate illumination without blinding other drivers. If necessary, fine-tune the aiming using small adjustments to the aiming screws until the desired beam pattern is achieved.
