pop your hood and turn the screws under the hood. pull up to a wall to adjust them and make sure both are even.

basically find that scree drive up reall close to a wall without hitting it put some colored tape in the center of where the lights show on the wall and pull back away from lights about 25 feet then aim your lights 2 inches below where you put the tape and your set

At 3:20 in this video, it'll run you through how to aim headlights and exactly where the adjustment screw is. On my headlights it's a pain in the ass to do it with a screwdriver so I just use a socket wrench.

Here's an aiming height diagram. I usually like to have the car about 20 ft out from the wall and have the cutoff line for low beams about 2-3 inches above my headlights

Just take em out and throw them on the ground, and put them back in. Works 60% of the time, every time.
