735il headlight adjustment?

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone here knows where the screws are to adjust the vertical and horizontal positioning of the headlights on a 1990 735il. They're way to low and I'm getting poor visibility during night driving. They've been this way since I got the car in July, but now that winter is here with shorter sunlight hours, I'm suddenly ready to fix this (when I should have done it in the summer!!!!!!).

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Dave

If you remove the grills there are adjustment screws on the light Bracket

If you look at the headlights there will be a small hole near the lense. A long phillips will adjust them through that hole.

Finally, after much messing around, I was able to get this done. The screws that were in there were in bad shape and needed to be removed and replaced. Tried the local stealership which said they can't get them so I went to an industrial fastener shop that was able to find them and even cut them to the same length for me.

I can see at night again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the help guys. I would have probably paid someone to do this without your assistance. Still learning much about my car.
