For me (I have an 05, I don't know if it is different with an 00-04), the driver's side was easy, but the passenger's side was rough. I would recommend taking them out, sliding them forward so you have a little more room, and adjusting from there.

Why give advice if you haven't had experience with it? I'll be sure to come with you for Duratec advice since you have the Zetec engine.

Ok so this is what mine looks like:

Code:
 + _
O o
  -
The big O is the projector and the little o is the high beam.
The + = phillips, and the - = flat head.

It looks like the only adjustment I can make to the projected beam is up and down, and the high beam can be adjusted both left/right and up/down.

Any suggestions?

Keep looking. There are 3 screws (flathead) for the high beam, 2 (philips) for the low beam/projector.

I've only got one adjuster on mine. The whole housing moves with the screw. I ended up drilling through the edge of the lip for the rubber cap and putting long screws in. I turne the screws until the aim is right. It's a PITA but that's the only way mine would adjust.

you can go to canadian tire but if you live in the usa im not sure where you can pick this tool up but its a screw driver made for turning screws in really small spaces but if you can't get ahold of that you can allways use needle nose pliers cause there is no way you will turn that little wheel thing to adjust your headlights
