Also, Paul, where did you power your DRLs from?

Slot #72, which is empty in the fuse box (the rectangular box between 12v battery & firewall), will power the DRLs upon activating power, but the DRLs also turn on when charging!

Some folks like it, but I'm seeking another power source, aside from wire #57 in PDM (don't like messing with that box/harness).

You will find info on 72 & 57 on other threads here...

Any input appreciated.

Hi,

I recently bought a 2017 Nissan Leaf S and it uses the H13 bulb. I bought LED H13 hi/lo bulbs and installed them. I test drove my Leaf with the LED H13's and I find them pointing too high for my taste.

Does anyone know how to adjust the aim on the headlights. I couldn't find a screw port or anything online for the information. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

KinDred

It's the thin white plastic screw/knob that sticks out, right next to the blue knob.

Did my upgrade two years ago, still very happy with the setup. Just replaced my fog light with LED too, that's whole lot more difficult than the high beam though, I guess Nissan didn't expect people to change that bulb. Almost all of my lights are LEDs now, except the reverse.

There are 100 different brands and models to choose from on Amazon. Any recommendations on brand and how do I know which model? I've got a 2016 SL

Thanks

I feel your Pain! I recently replaced the high beams with these (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MXMIRY6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1). Note that they are like most of them in that there are chips on two opposite sides. I figured the reflector would distribute the light sufficiently, I was wrong. There is a definite beam pattern that can be adjusted by aligning the bulb (orientation of the chips) in the housing of the reflector. With these there is a very small screw which can be removed and the white plastic hub can be rotated into three different positions. One of the bulbs lined up for me using one of the alternate positions. The other bulb required some dremeling to get it right.

With this knowledge I then looked for some "better" bulbs for my Honda Accord and found these:

I am hopeful that they will eliminate the issues I described above. I just got them and will hopefully install this weekend.

Highlight urls and then use the "url" option in the edit list.
