Is there any way to adjust the headlights on the Compass?
Nothing in the manual and no obvious adjustment screws. There is one hex nut on the inside top of the headlight housing but no obvoius relation to adjustment in the up-down direction.
Try this there is a small screw top rear right on the back of the lamp that will raise or lower the lamp. There is no left to right adjustment for US MK's according to the service manual
NOTE: Due to the linear nature of the headlamp cutoff, a properly aimed low beam headlamp will project the top edge of the high intensity pattern on the alignment screen from the horizontal line to 50 millimeters (2 inches) below the horizontal line for domestic market vehicles, or to 125 millimeters (5 inches) below the horizontal line for export market vehicles. No horizontal (right/left) adjustment is required for this headlamp beam pattern in domestic market vehicles. Export market vehicles have a second horizontal (right/left) adjustment screw provided on the outboard side of the headlamp unit rear housing. The high beam pattern will be correct when the low beams are properly aimed.
1. Turn the headlamps ON and select the LOW beams for vehicles in all markets except Japan. Vehicles for the Japanese market should have the headlamp HIGH beams selected.
2. Use a screwdriver to rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw (2) on each headlamp unit (3) to adjust the beam height as required.
3. For export markets only, use a screwdriver to rotate the headlamp horizontal adjustment screw (1) on each headlamp to adjust the beam right or left as required.
Fog lamp adjust
FOG LAMP ALIGNMENT
NOTE: A properly aimed 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. Turn the fog lamps ON.
2. Insert a screwdriver through the clearance notch (1) at the top of the front fog lamp (2) seat of the front fascia (3) to rotate the vertical adjustment screw on each lamp to adjust the beam height as required.
