You can try one of 2 things

1 - Drive your car up against a flat wall. Use masking tape to mark where the headlight's center is (make a + pattern). Back up about 20 feet and adjust your headlights where the TOP of the beam touches the bottom of the tape. To do this, find the adjuster screws and turn them.

2 - Take your car to Pep Boys. They charge about $10 to do this and you don't have to worry about it.

... it'd probably help if we told him how they adjust

if you open the hood & look under the headlight backing panel, you'll see three white knobs.... u turn those in & out to adjust em the way you want.... it's a pretty simple design if you stop & think about what you're doin for just a second
