I noticed this is 6 months old so I don't know if you have figured it out yet but heres an answer for you. On the back of the headlights there are 3 plastic heads, they turn but spray some wd40 or something on them first. You might have to take the headlights assembly out to get a good bite on them.

Headlight adjustment is fairly straight forward, you will need to park the car on a level surface with a fence or wall 25 feet away and a reference point for measurements to the right or left of the car. First measure from the reference point to the center line of the car then transfer that to the wall, second, measure from the center of the car to the center of the headlights and transfer those to the wall, third, measure from the ground to the center of the headlights and transfer that to the wall. Once all of the reference points have been transferred, adjust the left (driver's side) headlight so that the most intense part of the beam is 2 inches below and 2 inches to the right of the left mark, the right (passenger side) headlight should be adjusted so that it will be 2 inches below and 1 inch to the left of the mark. If done correctly, you will have very good night vision without blinding oncoming traffic.
P.S. Please note that any heavy objects in the car will be a factor in correct headlight adjustment, have the car loaded as it will be normally used.
Hi, are the headlamps Zenon? If they are you will need to take the car to a dealer. If they are normal halogen lamps then you can adjust them with a 6mm hex key. If you look vertically downwards at the rear of the lamp unit you'll see the adjuster about halfway down facing up at you. simply turn with the hex key until you reach the required adjustment.
Hope that helps Matt..
Don't remember if you need to remove outside cover to get to it (some trim frames have an access notch) but there is one adjustment in the center top of the light frame (up/down and one on the outer edge of frame L/R) you need to adjust both because as lamp changes position it pivots slightly on the other adjustment.
