Default Adjusting New TYC Headlamp Assembly

I recently put a new pair of TYC headlamp assemblies on my 05 PT. The passenger side aims fine without any adjustment. But the Drivers Side is very high and I am unable to bring it down. I have tried the T20 Torx but it does nothing regardless how much I spin it. I have looked on the rear of the assembly the best I can see, but do not see any adjustment screws. Anyone have any idea on how to adjust the TYC Headlamp assembly?

Is the end of your T20 torx still attached to the headlight body, it's very easy for them to pop out during install. (comment based on standard rhd headlights in the UK).

Cool Re: Adjusting New TYC Headlamp Assembly

Probably not a T20 torx screw in the new headlight. The replacement headlights I put in mine use a #2 philips driver.

What I ended up doing a few times was adding washers or a tube spacer to change the aim.
The space must be created inside the body flange where the mounting post goes through.
That is, pushing the bottom of the assembly out & up.
