How do you adjust headlights?

I have a 2104 Berkshire and the headlights illuminate the highway very poorly. It would help if they were adjusted upwards. All I can figure out is to adjust the light assembly mounting bolts. Doing this will adjust the bright and dim at the same time, this doesn't seem right to my previous years of adjusting headlights.


Bottom photo is the backside of the RH light assembly.
Thanks!

Erniet,
If you look at your photo of the back of the headlights, you'll see a white toothed wheel on the extreme right. They are designed so that you can turn a screw driver that is inserted beside the wheel and catch the teeth to turn the wheel slowly. That turns a gear and adjusts the headlights. Look around and there should be an up-down and left-right wheel for each lamp. Sometimes there are markings to say which is up, etc.

The headlights are Autoeyes clones of Toyota Highlander headlights and Autoeyes copies the OEM alignment system. So, look up the alignment of Toyota Highlander 2001-03 headlights.

The blank wall headlight aiming procedure found here https://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-Car-Headlights or https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/r/...ust-headlights can be adapted to larger vehicles. The 3.5 foot from ground at 25 feet is what you are aiming for with all size of vehicles. Years ago when I had my first car all garages and service centers had a wall marked off the same way with a DOT issued wall banner. I have used the same procedure on my last 12 vehicles over the years, 4 trucks, 1 car and 1 mini-van were new from the dealer. My latest 2018 Silverado was fine when I bought it, but I don't drive much after dark now days.
