There are 2 adjustments on the back of the headlight. The outside lower adjustment is accomplished by turning the inner plastice radius not the outer slip hold down nut. In order to adjust the light it is necessary to grip the smooth inner plastic radius that extends out beyond the hold down nut. This happens pretty fast and is noticeable farely quickly. There is another access port from the top as well however it is a pain. So, it is easer to just grip the smooth plastic on the outside. The adjustment to the upper inner is accomplished more easily with an 8mm socket or wrench an is farely easy and readily visible. Both adjustment are normally white plastiic on a black plastic casing and adjust over a metal screw. Hope this is enough.
