    Make sure bulbs are installed properly. Possible hidden body damage? Take it to shop with properly set up headlight aimer (usually stations that do safety inspections are good for this.If they are damaged or the adjuster(s) are siezed expect to replace affected unit.

    Depending on what other shops are available in your area, I think the dealer or body shop would be best. In some cars ,they only have up/down adjustment,not left or right -meaning if the bracket/assembly was bumped or shifted in any way (sideways) it needs to be dis-assembled and the metal straightened out to factory measurements.I hope I'm wrong on yours and that you do have both up/down & left/right adjustments.=====FORGOT to ask--- They are factory headlamps --right??
