Occasionally, the headlights on your 2005 Dodge Ram will need to be adjusted in order to optimise your visibility while driving at night. Normally, the only time a 2005 Dodge Ram's headlight housing needs to be adjusted is when you have just installed new headlights and the headlight housing did not come pre-adjusted from the factory. Two adjustment screws control the position of the 2005 Dodge Ram headlight. You'll need a special tool called a Torx-bit screwdriver to adjust the headlight. Torx-bit screwdrivers are special screwdrivers that have a star-shaped point on them. They are available from most auto parts stores.

    Turn the Ram's headlights on.

  3. 3

    Open the bonnet and locate the headlight adjustment screws on the back of the headlight housing.

  4. 4

    Turn the horizontal headlight adjustment screw until the centre of the Ram's headlight beams are sitting at the bottom of the garage door, where the door meets the ground. Turn the vertical adjustment screw until the headlight beams are overlapping each other by 50 per cent.
