Question 02-08 Headlight Adjustment?

The only adjustment I can see is to move the headlights horizontally... I have no vertical... I cant imagine that there isn't a vertical adjustment, but I just can't seem to find it.... I've looked all around the headlight.. Does anyone know where this is? Thx

Thumbs up Vertical aim

This from the shop book
Rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw (2)
on the inboard side of each front lamp unit housing

Default Screen shoot text

Just incase you can't read it
HEADLAMP ALIGNMENT
NOTE: Due to the linear nature of the headlamp cutoff, a properly aimed low beam headlamp will project the
top edge of the high intensity pattern even with the headlamp horizontal reference line on the alignment
screen. No horizontal (right/left) adjustment is required for this headlamp beam pattern. The high beam pattern
will be correct when the low beams are properly aimed.
1. Turn the headlamps ON and select the Low
beams.
2. Rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw (2)
on the inboard side of each front lamp unit housing
(1) to adjust the beam height as required.

Try to soak the threaded section of the adjuster with pb blaster...i have seen people turn the adjuster after years of sitting and they break the plastic that holds the adjuster to the lamp.
