Yes, there is a geared wheel, behind each headlight. You use a large phillips screw driver to adjust them. If the car is on a level surface, the lights should aim slightly down.

"Off" by how much? The left (driver's side for those who are directionally challenged) is supposed to be slightly lower than the right. The idea being you don't blind drivers coming the other direction.

headlight adjusting

they overlap! both have that step built in the projector itself. people think its left and right in the middle its not. Both headlights are built with that step in both headlights and they again overlap. You can adjust the left or the right you will always have one higher than lower. Raise your left it'll have that step then you will have to raise your right oh it has a step too gotta raise the left again? seems kinda simple
