    I bought a 2000 379 a few months back. Well it came with single round headlights on J brackets. They need to be adjusted down. Anybody on here ever done this with round headlights? Does the nut on the bottom loosen it on the bracket so you can adjust it? I’ve never dealt with these before.

    Yes the nut on the bottom you can adjust it ..a 3/4" wrench should be the right size

    I use a 3/4 deep socket. My nuts are recessed into the JJ bracket and a wrench won’t help me. Also they have a crush washer around a carriage type bolt that holds all that together. Don’t over tighten or it will take the cushion out of it and cause that piece on bottom to break out around the bolt

    Okay I just snugged them up after adjusting them. But I’ll double check that in the morning. Thanks a lot
