Default How do you aim JDM STi headlights (bugeye)?

I'm trying to adjust my JDM STi HID's (the black chrome ones) on my '02. I've fiddled with both of the little gear looking contraptions and neither seem to have any effect on the aiming of the low beams.
Where is the thing you adjust?

I just put these same headlights in my car as well. The white adjustment knob on the lower part of the headlights is for the up and down and the one closer to the top is for the side to side adjustment. If the bottom one doesnt work it my be broken. I had no problems with mine so you can adjust them with out the levelers hooked up.

the only way to aim them is ****can them and put proper lhd lights on your car


this has come up before and there is no way to aim them

jdm lights are just W R O N G and can NOT be made right

You can't aim them as they are but you can retrofit them. People have used different parts but I know the mercedes E55 Bi-Xenons work. Check this thread out.
