I've searched through the owners manual online, but could not locate any way to adjust the headlight beams. Right now the headlight beams are unbalanced at night. One is higher than the other. Yes I was on a level surface when I checked this.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I don't want to have to go to the dealer :(

Okay. I did some digging around. I finally realized there's a Philips head screw on the back of the headlight assembly. You're going to turn this screw counter clockwise and that will raise the beam higher.

I am including a picture of the passenger headlight with an arrow pointing out where the screw will be located.

Cheers
