I have this problem too. I think you have to first pull off the clip with some circlip pliers Then you need a special 4mm wrench that can reach in there and turn the "Allen head" type end. This is just a guess as I have not yet been successful.

More Info.Success! Do Not remove the circlip but instead find a tool that will grab the 4mm Allen wrench type end and simply turn it. I was able to move it with very small vise grips but ideally you want a 4mm adjusting socket. It would be a special tool, like a ratchet with nothing but a 4mm hex opening on the lower end. Crank the top thread in to move the lights down. The left and right controls are more difficult to reach.
