Adjusting headlights

Ok so I have these nice clear headlights tht came with the car when I got it. Don't know which ones they are. But dam I car see at night. They were missing a clip I eah side and I replaced them. But they seem to still be pointed down. What else can I do to adjust these lights to see better at night.

Can you move the headlight by grabbing them with the sliders in place? If the headlight is firmly seated without movement there is not much you can do. But if the slider pin is worn or the headlight is worn in the slider rails, then you can use a small wooden wedge to insert inbetween the headlight and the slider pins. If the lights are pointed downward, then slip the wedge at the bottom, if the lights are pointed upward, then you slip the wedge in the upper side of the slider pin. I have used frozen popsicle sticks to use as a wedge

There is an adjuster on the top of the head light to adjust the vertical aim (up and down). You just use a screwdriver.
In the owners manual, you should be able to find the specs to adjust them properly.

Yeah tonight when its dark out pull rite up close to a wall or building so that you can see where the lights are aiming, pop your hood and on top of each light is a screw u turn to aim them up or down. Adjust them until they look good to you and your done.

Huh, learn something everyday. My wife continually accuses me of looking at porn because I am on the computer so much. Now I can go and show her my screw that I never knew I had. That aught to show her that porn is not the only thing on the net.

You can see the adjuster pretty clearly in this pic. It's on the back of the headlight, near the grill. Sholud just need a philips screwdriver.
