While I haven't attempted to adjust them usually there are screws located on the housing that you would turn to get the desired angles.

Dear joey,

Giving us the year of your Santa Fe would be very helpful.

Get out your owner's manual.
Open to page 6-18 or the range between 6-16 to 6-20 pages.
Look for the heading "Headlight Aiming Adjustment".
Follow the instructions.

You are welcome.

Lost your manual? Call 1-800-633-5151. Free manual replacement.

Byron

You can just twist the knob at the back of the headlight assembly housing to raise or lower them, no tools needed and the manual doesn't cover it well.

I can post a photo if you can't find it...

There are screwdriver slots along the radiator cowl piece that goes above the headlamp assemblies but it's easier just to reach behind the hadlanp assembly and grab that ratchet-like wheel directly. That is where the screwdriver tip would slowly turn it, but it's quicker and easier to turn it directly with your fingers. I kicked myself when I realized how easy it was. They probably won't budge just with finger power in a few years though...

I really wish I could take this thing off that cuts my lights in half and puts a line about 100 ft in front of me..
