ok for the low beams there should be a big screw cap at the back to take off you will prob have to remove the battery for the drivers side to get your hand in their, real b**ch of a job.

you cant asjust teh lowbeams as they are projectors, the high beams can be asjusted by taking off the plastic cover thing, that covers the bonnet latch etc, on the top of the headlight in the middle more on the high beam side you should see a screw, use a phillip shead screwdriver tightning and untightning ad just the light up and down real easy to do.

reminds me i have to adjust mine :?

So how exactly do you adjust the lowbeams, do they have a screw or something as well?

you can adjust low and high beam using a flatblade screwdriver or a 6mm spanner from memory. There are 2 adjustments on each beam which allow you to move the beam up-down/left-right

Projectors or not there is still a pattern the light produces on the road which can be shifted up/down and left/right. And if theyre not lined up, adjusting them will do a heap!
