I'm trouble figure how to adjust the headlights. I found a lot of information on how to adjust the pre 2010 models, so I assume its pretty much the same.



Correct me if I'm wrong..
To adjust the headlight horizontally you use a philip head screw driver and turn the screw ('A' in the picture) from the top part. To adjust the headlights vertically (height), you need to adjust 'B' in the picture. But I couldn't figure how to adjust the 'B' part because its not the same as the screw in 'A' or that part isn't adjustable.

I have only done the vertical adjustment. Here is a re-quote from my previous post of hid.

When you look at the back of the headlight housing on driver side, 1-1/2" right of the dust cap, there is a 12mm bolt with Philips head. On top it also has slot showing a round dial with teeth.
To adjust:
Either you turn the bolt with 12mm spanner (it's easier), or use a chubby Philips.
or
use a Philips inserting into the slot to turn the dial with teeth.
Turn clockwise to lower the beam.
Recommend marking the original position of the tooth (facing upward) with a white paint. Use it to count number of turn you made, as well as you can return the dial to oem position, if you kind of regret doing the adjustment.
1 full turn results a minor degree of adjustment. In my case I made 6 full turn to lower the beam.
Hope it helps.
