Okay, I did a search on the site to find out how to adjust the headlights on a Baja, but I only found a few topics and nothing that described what I need.

I understand at what level and the basics of aiming my headlights properly, which is what I found. But, what I do not know is what mechanism on the headlight allows for the adjustment. Most times, in other vehicles, it is a screw that moves the direction of the headlight up or down, but in a Baja setup I am unclear what to look for. I cannot find the adjustment screw, if there is one.

I have not yet taken apart the assembly to look closer, but I figured the adjustment screw would be out in the open and easy to access.

if you could attach a pic of the light setup it would be a great help with the assessment.. Wink for example.. is it on a pivot mount welded to a cage setup or does it have a fender / hood mounted headlight bucket so on and so forth..

My only tip is park in front of a level brick wall. You'll have something good to aim at.

I pull my car out into a parking lot, aka The Mall. I adjust the highs 1st then the lows should fall into place. I sit in the car and set them to the spot I like them. If you do the lows 1st you will find out the highs are hunting for squirals.

This.

I try to find a dark street to use. Once you adjust the high beam the low beam takes care of itself.

I can't seem to attach the pictures I took, but based on what you are saying, I have a fender mount headlight.

If I could attach the pictures, I would, but I can't figure out how with the messaging for this site.

have the pics uploaded through photobucket or somethin similar.. with fender mounts, you need to locate or install adjusters around the metal trim under the metal ring that holds the headlight in..
you can kinda see that i installed two upper adjusting bolts..
