need to make left headlight aim higher

ok my dilemma is my left headlight is sagging too low, so the beam points down directly in front of the car rather than out like the right side. i need to know a remedy for this. its the actual assembly and not the bulb angle

You need to go get the headlight re-aimed.

there should be some screws in the headlight sides, park infront of a building and turn the lights on and turn the screws, (thats how mine is but i have a sexy pre 99 keep in mind the driver will be lower then the pass..

If you have a 99, there should be no problem with that. There is no way to adjust the entire assembly of the headlamp, because it fits in there one way. If the whole assembly is pointed down, either the spot where it is attached is fubared, or it's not put in place correctly.

In that case, grab your headlight and shake it and see where it's moving at.

basically what happened was the two clips that hold it in are only sliding in, almost like the holes in the headlamps they slide thru are too big. so i might just adjust the clips so theyre a lil bigger and that will hopefully reposition the headlight up where i need it.
