Help ajusting head lights

I bought new head lights and bulbs when I did my make over and I can't get my head light to adjust up. They are aiming very low. I am running them on high beam and no one is high beaming me back that is how low they are pointing.

Is there another way to adjust them besides the screw on the top that adjust them, or could it be the bulbs themselves.

I used the screw on the back of the housing but it didn't seem like it really made a difference

I used a wall to see where it's at, took 3x trial and error.. Have it perfect for me now

It's not the screw on the back. It's the screw on the top

There's a screw on top. It's a Philips. Get ur car as close to a wall as u can and take some masking tap and put it in the center of the light beam on the wall. Back your car off 25 feet and adjust the beam back on the cross u made earlier. I believe u loosen the screw to raise the beam. U will see it move

If you have the owners manual for the car, there are some precise instructions for adjusting the headlamps.

Thanks guys I figured it out. I was using the the Phillips head screw but it was not doing anything. I tried it again and turned it until it stopped then reversed the direction and it started moving the beam on the wall. So if you are having this problem try turning it until it bottoms out the it should start working.
