there should be an adjustment screw on the headlight one that pivots the headlights left or right, and that goes up and down..
Crap, my hampster fell off the wheel and it broke its leg.

Pop the hood and look straight down on the top of the light, behind the light there should be a screw hole (one round and one oblong) to the left and the right. You'll need a torx driver (I believe a T15) to adjust these. The round hole is for vertical adjustment and the oblong is for horizontal.
