headlight adjustment

How do you adjust headlights that seems to have not one adjusting screw? Now using popcycle sticks to get headlights from pointing down to the ground. Numbers on light bulbs are hb4 for low beams and hb3 for high beams. Is this correct? (1992 model year.)

Do you have the old style glass headlights or the newer plastic enclosed ones?

There is not one. But, there are three adjustment screws.

They are are found under plastic access panel, over headlight (lift hood).

Rotate plastic nut around to move screw in or out. There is likely a "special tool" for this.

Why adjust? Unless you have been in an accident or replaced lens assembly, the alignment should be okay.
