how to adjust headlights 96 svt cobra

I purchased a 96 SVT Cobra in August. Driving at night the lights are dim. I always drive with both the headlights and the foglights on. It appears that one of my headlights is pointed up. I light the overhead signs more than the road. Is it easy to adjust them? Should I use a wall or garage door as a target? Thanks in advance for any advice. Btw the lights are crystal clear. Fogging is not the problem. Thanks, Spiney-Dave

Yes it is easy. Open the hood and look at the top of the lights on the back housing and there should be a knob with teeth on it stick a Phillips head screwdriver in there and turn the knob to desired spot. A rule of thumb I learned with headlights is use a wall and have someone stand in front of the beams and adjust the beams till it is about their knee to hip height. Hope that helps
