The screws are for aiming. You have to remove the corner lamps and then
depress the little plastic tabs on the things the screws go into while
pulling forward on the headlamp. It's a bit of a pain.
I got '98 cobra head lamps (aftermarket) they are pretty good. I got most
of the performance increase from using good bulbs and putting in relays
so the lamps got full battery/alt power.
Ford's headlamp design isn't that great, so if you just stay away from
the riceboy stuff you shouldn't end up with something worse beam pattern
