Headlight adjustment

How do you adjust the headlights on a 99 slk230? I took one off to clean the moisture out of it and now its out of adjustment. Its pointing almost straight down. You can barely see the beam just over the edge of the hood. Thanks

First, check that you've remounted it the same way it was before.

These units don't change aim simply from being removed from the car.

Plus, moisture should only get in when something is broken.

Most of the time--unless car has electric leveling--aim is adjusted by hand with big thumbscrews that are hard to miss. That is, not with a screwdriver.
