The owners manual, if you have it, will show you how. At any rate on the side of each light, once the hood is opened, you will see an adjustment screw with a phillips head fitting on the top.

Put your car on a level driveway and if possible facing a white wall or garage door. Make sure there is no extra weight in the car or trunk. Once this is done, you can adjust the lights so they are even on the wall.
