Ahh Help Me Pls..

So I have ZKW Euro Projector's with DDE and H1 bulbs. My light pattern blows so much! So I went out and started messing with the screws on the back of them for what I thought adjusted the lights. This did NOTHING but make the light patten worse.. does anyone have a DIY on how to adjust these damn things?

i can help you out a little bit. the screws ontop of the projectors are the left and right aimer thing, and the ones over the higbeams are vertical. dont strip the screws out like i did. i had to use the mounting screws to aim them down a little bit. if screwing w/ a screw driver doesnt seem to work, use an allan wrench (spell check) from then on out. becareful not to dethread teh aimer screw...it can be put back in just takes some time... i hoped that helped
(i needed to change the fuse for my h7's im such a newb lol) later

ahh harsh lol.. way to rub it in no I figured it out actually last night... what a pain in the ass. Plastic screws had basically become nothing more then plastic. So I made my own tool to turn the knobs and it worked better that way. And I don't think for a second I know more then most people on here. I've just experienced more with my car then others and have that experience to go from hehe
