The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

When you pop the hood, at the back of your headlights, you are going to see two knobs which can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise by either your hand or a short screwdriver. one knob is for the vertical direction and the other one is for the horizontal one

How do i adjust the headlight beam anngle on my 2001 jag s type?

It's best to have your headlights adjusted by a shop that has the equipment to do the job. Head light aiming equipment takes into account how level the car is before adjustments. The cost of a ticket for misaligned headlights is more than getting them aimed properly.

Headlight adjustment screws

They will probably be inset adjacent to the headlight. You'll find a horizontal and a vertical adjusting screw, with small springs behind them. Some cars come equipped with a small level (like a carpenter's level) attached to the top of the headlight under the hood to help you get the correct adjustment.
