The L3 detector is designed to measure the muon momentum with a 2% resolution at p = 45 GeV/c. We discuss here the systems we developed to reach the required accuracy and control the mechanical alignment at running time. We also report on the test done on the muon spectrometer with UV lasers and cosmic rays.
