Default Headlight Problem

Ok have a problem with my S80. The headlights are way to low, if they were the fog lights they would be position perfect. I have tried to adjust them by the hor/vert adjustments but they will not go any higher. I have tightened all the screws to make sure they are not lose. And I am still at a lost here any ideas on how else to bring them up? I am short of replacing the head lights completly or taking it to the stealership to have them go at me with no KY to tell me whats wrong.

So there are two adjustments right. one for up/down and another for left/right.
well if you have adjusted the headlight then maybe the bulb is not housed properly into the lamp. So maybe you need to remove the bulb and make sure its properly inserted/aligned/straightened into that housing.
give that a try.

If your headlights are self-leveling the suspension module (SUM) may need re-calibrating.
