Turning the screw should be all you have to do. Not sure which way but if you have it lined up on something after dark you will be able to tell if your going the right way.

Replace your headlight like this:

Here is some stolen text:
"There is an adjustment screw for both headlights. I too have HIDs and I love them. Clockwise lowers the beam and Counterclockwise raises them. You can find measuring specifics online. Something like 20 feet away from a wall on a level surface the cutoff needs to be something related to the distance from the floor to the middle of the headlight"

A little more here:
"thanks, I successfully made the adjustment last night, the tool required is a Torx T-60 bit"

and all kinds of hints and instructions here:

I turn the headlight adjutment screw but the light does not move up or down on the drivers side. Any idea what I can do so I can adjust it properly?

Might be rusted and seized up. Try spraying some WD40 and let it sit for a while. Then try turning screw again. Do this a few times, if still not able to adjust, recommend you remove head light assembly and replace the adjustment screw.

How to adjust headlights

There are two screws one above each headlight.To find them
open the bonnet. Probably they are plastic one a little yellow
color .You can turn them with a screwdriver. Turning them the
lights will go up or down. So please put your car in front of
your garage door in a horizontal position in a distance of
5 to 6 meters and try to have the beans in the same line.

This could be the adjuster screw. Park you car close enough to a wall or any other reflective surface and "mark where the beam is hitting the surface, then try turning the screw and gauge which direction the light beam moves. Adjust it to suit.

2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD - adjust headlight aim, mine is too high

every headlamp has two adjusting set screws. One for vertical and horizontal. They are normally a torx driver socket that will turn these screws. If you have a garage use the garage door at night to set the beams reflecting off the door. Centering the truck to a center mark on the door would be helpful when you make the adjustments. That way your headlamps should aim evenly. Please note if your driveway is not level jack up the trucks rear end to make it so. Leveling the vehicle makes the difference before any adjustments are mad

No parking brakes

If it has rear drum brakes jack up the back of the vehicle and pull off a drum click up the adjusting screw on the bottom a little bit say 5 or clicks then try to put drum back on if it goes on really easily pull it back off and adjust another 5 clicks or so go till drum wont go on and back the adjustment the other way useing a screw driver or something to hold the arm off of the adjusting screw so you can turn the screw back the other direction about 3 clicks till drum goes on snug but not too tight do the same for the other side.If you have rear disc brakes you have to adjust the cable going to the brake caliper adjust it tighter by about a half an inch or so at a time then go push on the e brake pedal it will get a little more resistance behind it after it gets a little tighter put a wheel back on and try to turn it with e brake on if you cant turn it release it try to turn wheel again if you can its adjusted some have a cable for both rear wheels adjust both as needed.
