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

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
