I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.
This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

Most of the luxury models and most newer vehicles have a bubble level that is on the back side of the headlamp that can be seen with the hood open and the may be an access cover that wil have to be opened to see it. There is an adjustment on the headlight to "level" the headlight for an optimum projection without blinding oncoming traffic. Here is the thing, you must make sure you vehicle is on a perfectly level surface before leveling you headlamps or everything you do will be a waste of time.
