Default headlight adjustment

Hi, I recently purchased a 2002 XC70, but the headlights are aiming too low, but the manual says I have to take it to the dealership for adjustment...is that really necessary? If not, how do I adjust them?
thx a bunch...

There should be an adjustment gear under the hood ontop of the housing of the headlight. However with the newer models they might not have done this.

It is a small socket only that is needed. I think it is like a 5mm or something like that. There is 2 adjusters per light.
