How do you adjust your headlights up and down?

The nob on the back of the headlight seems to only adjust the light from left to right, not up and down...anyone know how to raise the headlight? My headlights angle too far downward so I need to raise them...reps will be given

Looking down from the top of the head light there is a philips head adjustment for up and down. You will have to remove the plastic cover to see it. There will be one next to each head light to adjust them independently.

I pulled the cover off trying to move it, but I didn't know what I was doing, then I turned a few screws behind the light to try to do it, but it just made the lights look goofy, so I took it to the dealership. They were all like.


This post doesn't really help at all though.

Simply open the hood and you will see a green box that comes out of the headlight. Use a phillips head screw driver to adjust the light up or down.
