Headlight Aim

On my last service at Ford I asked them to aim the headlights, thinking they would make the beam go higher (hard to see at night) but no, they made the beam go lower (damn apprentice). Anyway i want to fix the problem myself. I have to adjust the lights using the orange screw behind the lights, right? How high can the beam be? 1/2 meter? Any advice on adjusting the lights would be great. Thanks.

Re: Headlight Aim

If you've got a flat surface and a handy wall/garage door/etc you can shine the lights on, measure the height of the bulbs and mark or put some tape at the same height on the wall to align them to, and also a vertical line for each light to get the horizontal aim right. For more info get a Gregory's or similar manual (in this case any model will do because the principle is the same for any car).
