coule issues. adjust headlights, and new fog light capsule

okay, as for the headlights, i put my HID's back in, and NEED to adjust them down before i drive it, i feel bad for oncomming traffic. how do i go about doing that? is it the little screw on top of the housing thats visible from the top?

and as for the fog lights...

somehow, my passenger side fog light bulb rattled out when i was offroading, and sure enough, got mud all inside it, now thats not the worst part, when i put the bulb back in it didnt quite seem like it wanted to snap in, but when i thought it was good enough, i left it. turns out that it melted part of the hole for the bulb. now the bulb doesnt go in correctly at all.
where is a cheap place to buy just ONE fog light housing?

thanks. sorry for the long, probably hard to read thread.

Can't help with the fog light.

The headlights however are easy. There is a small post sticking up behind your headlight, right by the metal tab you pull up to get the headlight out. I think it takes a 5/32 socket, you'll need an extension to get past that metal tab. Turning it clockwise aims the lights down, turning counterclockwise aims the lights up.

The best thing to do about the fog light is to buy one on ebay.
