I did not Notice this problem before in my car. I have problem with the Headlamp. They are working fine. The only problem I have is that light goes up in the sky. I was driving on the highway today and was not able to see anything. High beam and low beam react the same. High beam and low beam I get all up on the sky. What could be the reason. Second problem I have with my wipers. When I drive my car on the highway they don't go at 90D. They sometimes go out of wind screen. They don't clean properly. With the wind they fly off basically. Is there a big play in it?Thats the problem I have.

You have to adjust your headlights down if they are pointing too high. Your highbeam and lowbeam bulb are the same bulb that is why it is occuring on both functions. There is an adjuster on both headlights that will allow you to adjust the beam lower.

With regards to your wiper problem, you may have a broken or loose wiper linkage. With the wipers in park, check if they wiggle up and down. I have seen some stabilizer linkages rott off from rust on honda's.

I agree with you. Now the problem I am getting is different. I looked at it and they are not sitting properly. I tired for 30 min and could not get it done. Can you just explain how they will sit in properly. They go inside but after I can't move them right or left. They don't move. I took out two bolts from top but I think there is no more in there. I don't know where is it. If I take it out its easier for me to fix it. It would be gr8 if you can expain it a bit. Thanks for your reply. I really appriciate.

I am having a hard time understanding exactly what the wiper blades are doing. Could you explain it better? From my understanding once they go down you cannot get them to wipe across the windshield again? If this is correct, you may have a wiper motor problem.

Have you taken the plastic trim off the vehicle yet to examine the transmission arms and linkages?

This is how you would remove the trim piece and linkages.
