its easier to actually loosen the lights to do this as, its a lil tight in the engine bay. on the back of the lights, take off the cover. on the inside of the light, u'll see a lil white wheel. if i remember correctly, clockwise raises the beam, counter clockwise lowers.

I don't recall an adjustment for the high beams. Just wondering, Why would you need to adjust these?

Yes, it will adjust both; the high and low beams are both connected on one adjustable holder. However, there are two screws that can be accessed from the top of the lights without having to remove them; they are located at the same places as a conventional first get adjustments. One (I can't remember which anymore) adjust the horizontal and the other adjusts the vertical. Just get you markings on a wall and use those two screws to line them up.

It's in the owners manual if you have one with your car. It says you can do it with the headlights in the car but I had to take the drivers side out. I couldn't get the cover on to save my life lol
