I just got my new Spyder HID headlight projector housings installed on my WJ. Unfortunetly out of the box they are aimed to high. Lights up the road and signs awesome, but I am sure I am pissing a few people off. So I am trying to figure out how to adjust them. I found a picture on Spyder Auto's website that points to an "adjuster". My question is which way do you turn the screw to adjust it down, and which way to adjust it up? How much adjustment is there per turn? How much luck have you guys with these housings had with that adjuster?
Yeah, that is what I planned on doing. The problem is you have to remove the housing each time you want to make an adjustment to that screw so I was hoping to know which way turning the screw moves the projector.
Point jeep at wall with headlights on. Decide how much you'd like to raise/lower the beam. Pop headlight out and leave wiring connected and headlights on. Hold headlight still with one hand while twisting with the other until desired change in height is achieved. It's not rocket surgery.

I was able to leave mine in the car and adjust... a long philips screwdriver reaches down there and you're able to teeth on the gear engage the screwdriver. However it's SLOW going as the adjustments are fine and if you're not holding the screwdriver just right you'll just slip it on by... I find I needed to apply some sideways tension when I did it in order to keep the screwdriver engaged.
If you look in your picture, at the top of the wheel are two plastic tabs... the screwdriver fits right between them.

The OP has aftermarket lights so he does not have the standard adjusting screw as we do on our headlights. To the OP that is a crazy design though that you have to remove the light to adjust. Not very well thought out on the manufactures part.
you dont have to remove the headlights to adjust them. The adjuster (red circle) is designed to take a screwdriver from the side. Thats what the little guides are above it. They keep the screwdriver in place so you can turn it. If you want to take the headlights off to see how it works, you can. Just takes a phillips head and your set.
