Adjusting Headlights (Horizontally)

Vertically, my headlights are fine, but my passenger headlight is pointing right further than it should. How can I fix this?

There are white plastic adjustment screws near the headlamps that are visible when you open the hood. One for vertical, one for horizontal. You just need a phillips screwdriver.

Thanks for the response. I found the screws on top of the housing. Where is the other screw? Which is for horizontal alignment?

I JUST adjusted the vertical adjustment on my 135, tired of my view going black when I switched to low-beams.

Here's a pic of what I THINK is the horizontal adjustment. The tab looks like you need a small tool like a dentists pick, as it just has a hole, although below that is what looks like a barrel that might accept a screwdriver or similar tool, but I'm hard pressed to figure out how one would get the tool lined up as it is deep in there.

Thank you for the picture, Mike the Snake! I owe you a beer (if it all works out).

Can anyone confirm?

I'll try it out maybe Friday night, or this weekend!
