Unfortunatly, that's the problem with these Ebay parts. They're cheaply made and honestly, junk. See if you can send it back due to defectiveness.

there should be adjuster screws near the top of the housing in back. Not the ones that hold the bulb steady, this screw should be higher up and probably looks useless. Adjust it slowly while the lights are on and pointed at a wall.

If the alignment is completely out of whack then adjusting won't help. And depending on how cheaply made these are, you may not even have adjuster screws.

Its easy to make cheap knock-off headlights and taillights and flip em on ebay so you gotta be careful who you buy from. Whats the brand name or seller name?
