Is there a way to change the horizontal alignment of the headlights? I have found the vertical adjustment control but none for the horizontal.
Do you

Driver side headlight now points towards the middle my lane and not along the edge of the center of the road. I don't want to blind drivers coming in the other direction but there is no light out in front of the driver - most of it is in front of the passenger.

WAS THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY REPLACED? THE REASON BEING, THE BEAMS ARE SET TO BE IN A CERTAIN POSITION, IF THAT POSITION HAS CHANGED, THERE MAY BE SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON. THE REFLECTOR INSIDE MAY BE BROKEN.

Before you make any adjustments, make sure the bulb is installed correctly. Have seen the bulb misaligned causing the light to shine too low in the ground or too high. If bulb is positioned in place correctly, here is the diagram as to where the adjustment screws are at. Hope info helps you out.

Headlamps, aligning

Warning! Adjustment of the headlamp beam is dependent on the legal requirements of the relevant market. Select intended market.

Caution! Cars equipped with Bi-Xenon lamps or halogen lamps are adjusted in the same way. To ensure that the position sensor for the Bi-Xenon lamps is correctly calibrated calibrate as follows.

Vehicles without Four-C see, VIDA, Car communication, rear electronic module (REM), Calibrating the Bi-Xenon lamp position sensor
Vehicles with Four-C see, VIDA, vehicle communication, suspension module (SUM), calibrating the system.
