headlight adjustments

Hey there, I'm new to this, so please bare with me. I need to adjust my headlights and not sure how to go about this. I just changed both bulbs, one is brighter and higher than the other. Can someone tell me how to adjust these?

one is brighter than the other or they are not projecting at the same angle? if one is brighter that is a light bulb problem. cant really "adjust" that i dont think

Hmmm, I use a phillips screwdriver to adjust mine. They look like little gears and I just stick the screwjy in there and twist until there level. There are 2 gears looking things, one is for up and down and the other is side to side....hope this helps

and I would've seen you were talkin
about brightness

How do I know that I seated the bulbs correctly? And yes, I replaced them myself!

Where do I locate the "gears" to adjust them up and down? I'm doing this solo and I thank you in advance

Don't adjust them! Leave them as is from the factory. If you headlights were properly and evenly leveled before, there should not be a reason why you would have to adjust them again. Definite get a flashlight in there and make sure all 3 tabs are in the indentations before you push that metal clip over them.
