1999 Chev Prizm headlight adjustment

Does anyone know how to adjust? Where are adjustment screws located on the headlights? When shining on a wall, how do you know when they are adjusted correctly? Are there specifications somewhere?

For 1998 and later there are two screws for adjustment which is usual, however they are behind the light housing which requires some disassembly (earlier models are pretty similar), whereas you were probably looking to see them above or below and to one side. Pull the bulb housing forward after removing the screws and the adjustment screws will be visible. If you are not familar with what I am describing, I suggest you buy a Haynes repair book for about $15. It will help you with many other other repairs and basic maintenance. :)
