How do you adjust the headlights on a 2002 VW beetle?

Inside of each headlight bucket you will see a white cap, with a hex in the middle. This is the side to side adjustment. You will need a long 6mm ball end hex to get to these the best. I dont recall which direction changes left or right, just turn them and see which way the light goes.

The up and down adjustment is at the rear corner of each bucket. Do the same with this adjustment as you did with the side to side.

Use a wall in front of you with the vehicle about 25 ft from the wall. You can align them pretty good this way.

If this advise has been helpful, please accept.
