is there no other screws on the headlight? i know on my previous vehicle they were on the bottom part of the headlight and were a pain in the ass to adjust so i would pop the whole headlight out and check all over it

Finally i done it , if you were directly looking at the head light towards the grill there is a rubber gasket if you lift that you will see an area to put a Torx Screwdriver into, turning it clockwise (UP) / counter-clockwise (DOWN) will adjust them up and down.



Here's where (number 2):

i wonder if the first screws that you turned were for the side to side adjustments

i always pulled up to a garage wall or door to make my headlight adjustments, i found the levelest driveway to do it in, a bit of measuring & some tape to make a + on the wall in front of the 2 headlights & start adjusting

been there done that, then i started seeing an optometrist

then some smartass made a special screw, i ended it up using a cobalt drill bit to drill it out, then someone told me about the special tool needed for removal & installation, it is a anti theft screw with this little pin that makes you use a special TORX tool
http://www.amazon.com/Point-Tamper-P.../dp/B002HSSI84
the screw is called a TORX PIN HEAD
