Headlight aiming??!? - help!

I need to adjust the headlight aiming, but I can't see any adjusting screws. Has anyone done this yet? How?

There are some screws on the back of the light, but they don't look like the adjust the position of the sealed beams.

I have a complete set of factory service manuals and find nothing in them about adjusting head lights. I am not saying they cannot be adjusted but if they can it is the best job of hiding it I have seen. These are the worst manuals I have ever had to find anything in. The owners manual tells how to change the bulbs but nothing about adjusting them. The one thing I did find are 2 Allen sockets with screws in them, one on each side in a bar over the rear of the light assemblies. There are actually 2 holes in the bar above the lights but only one looks like an adjustment. I am going to ask the service manager at the dealer ship monday.

I have come to the conclusion after 2 years* of asking the the service guys to adjust them that it cannot be done by mere mortals. Therefore I am going to get either a light bar or some bumper mounted vision enhancers soon(tm)

*had a deer strike about 2.5 years ago and when I got it back from body shop, my high beams looked like lows and my lows were worse than just running lights.

Found it . . . the adjusting Torx screw is accessible thru the top of the crossmember directly above the headlights, at least on my 2010 Sport.
Enjoy!
