I have the basic halogens. The thread in the sticky has missing images. Is it supposed to click with every turn? How difficult is it supposed to be to turn with a hex wrench?

I can't remember if it clicks or not, but you can feel each notch as it turns. just don't do it on a cold day and have it snap on you.

On my 2005, it was actually backwards of what the Sticky post had said. I ended angling the headlights in the wrong direction, and snapped of the adjuster before I found out mine was the opposite way of that poster.

I do mine against a brick wall. There was no resistance with mine just turned it with a socket and extension.

They are very fragile. Do NOT use the angle gear (white). I highly recommend pulling the headlight & making sure the mechanism is free before proceeding. I did mine by pulling the light before making each adjustment, test, repeat. Of course both my adjusters were already broken & I had to fab up a fix using a sheet metal screw.

So the screw on the upper part of the housing is for vertical? And the lower one is horizontal adjustment? I turned my top one 5 clicks and didn't notice anything

Don't waste your time trying the white adjusters on the top - use the corresponding hex adjuster (black) on the back lower side - there is one per white adjuster. That works much better. Clockwise adjusts up, counter = down.
