The only adjustment that is adjustable on these headlamps is the vertical adjustment. The horizontal adjustment is not adjustable.

There is a 4 mm head on the back of the headlamp assembly. It's pretty small, You turn this screw clockwise to go down with the light, and counter clockwise to up with the light,

I like to pull up directly in front of a wall, park about 10 to 15 feet away, and see where the lights hit the wall at. Usually they are not both off unless it's been hit, and you can line both the lights up with each other and get them real close that way.

Here is what the back of the adjuster looks like, a 1/4 inch ratchet and 4 mm socket will be the best way to turn the adjuster. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
