Hello,

If the adjuster is on top of the light assembly then clockwise should push it up and if its on the bottom of the assembly clockwise will push it down.

Hello Adallen,

How did you make out with the adjustment. Being light earlier probably mad it a little difficult to get it just right. When I did these adjustments I do it after dark and I pull up to a wall or garage door, park about 10 feet from it and use the wall as your guide. Then a short run you'll be able to tell if you got it to where you want it. To high maybe good for your point of view but if you start getting people flashing you you've probably gone too high and it blinding on coming traffic. People aren't shy so you will know right away.
Thanks for using 2CarPros and be sure to keep us in your look up file for the future.
