Obtain a long-reach Philips head driver. Lift the bonnet. Over each headlight you will find a pair of holes - each around 1cm diameter. Poke the screwdriver through for about 20cm and it should engage with a Philips head screw. There is one screw on each side for up/down and another for left/right.

do the headlights come on automatically or manually, if manually turn off

I didn't want to wait, so I bought an ignition switch ($99 for a Duralast switch at Autozone) and installed it. It fixed my headlight problem. The directions to replace the ignition switch are attached. I have read that the ignition switch is the root cause of many electrical issues with Intrigues. My problem was I couldn't turn on the headlights manually, and I had to depend on the automatic headlight feature to turn the lights on at night, which stinks when I wanted headlights at dusk or in light rain (although I could run with fog lights, but darn it, I want my headlights to work!). I have read that others have only been able to turn their lights on manually without the automatic headlight feature working. Both issues appear to be fixed by either replacing the ignition switch or cleaning the terminals on the ignition switch. The theory is that most of the power system flows through that device and affects everything. I have heard about various heating and cooling system issues related to the ignition switch as well.

the vaccume lines are disconnected and I cant drive at night The headlights are held in the open or closed position by an over-center spring. You can push the headlight up from underneath and it will stay in the open position.

You can open them manually by going under the hood and rotating the motors by hand under the round black rubber things next to each headlight

Simply reach up under the headlight, below the grills, grab the center of the headlight mechanism and pull while gently lifting on the headlight door. This will bring the headlight to its open position. Once up, the headlight mechanism will lock in place, to lower the headlights, push against the mechanism and the door will close. You will basically be doing the work of the headlight actuator from the opposite side.
