    I need to do a headlight adjustment after a small lift. I want to start with moving the vertical adjustment down a little. I got the quote below from a headlight adjustment pdf:

    "The headlight aim moves up when turning the aiming screw clockwise, and moves down when turning the aiming screw counterclockwise."

    Question: Is this "clockwise" and "counterclockwise" when standing in front of the vehicle or when looking at the back of the headlight housing? To make the headlight beam move down, do I turn the adjustment screw towards the driver side or away from the driver side?

    Thanks for helping !
