right behind that metal clip should be a small round "thing" thats pointed upward. that adjusts the headlights up and down beam. take a small ratchet and find the right sized head and simply turn it until you get your desired height. note; you cannot adjust the sde to side beams, only the up and down.

Yes I only need up and down

By "behind" the metal clip, do you mean behind as in the front of the truck or behind to the back of the truck...do you not have to take the metal clip off?
