How to aim headlights?

I swapped headlights yesterday, and now mine are adjusted too high. How do I go about aiming the lights? I'm not talking about the specifications - these can be easily found online. I'm talking about the bolts that must be tightened/loosened in order to aim our headlights. I found instructions for 06+ coupes, but they didn't give me anything. I have an 05 G35x.

I think I've found the adjusters. Is a special tool required? It looks like it would have to be a really long screwdriver.

I adjusted mine with a long phillips head screwdriver. The end locks into the gear and turns it.

I recently installed new headlights, does anyone know if I should be adjusting them?

I tried this, but the phillips head wouldn't turn the gear. It just slipped. There was another adjuster-looking thing that I found near the top of the headlight, but it had what looked to be a hex head in there. I'm thinking I should just take the car to a shop to get professionally aimed. The dealer wants $60, no shot

This is probably the same thread you already looked at, but I'm pretty sure the gear you are looking for is the same. Try a different screwdriver. Mine worked first try, no problem. Either your screwdriver is too big/small or your adjustment gears are stripped out.

bringing back my old thread instead of starting a new one. Is there any adjustment for the lateral aiming of the headlights? My headlights are both pointed left a bit, which is annoying and would blind oncoming traffic.

EDIT:

according to the shop manual, there should be a second adjustment lower on the headlights. I bought a long (10" or so) screwdriver to adjust the vertical aim of the lights, which worked. I can't find the adjusting screw for the lateral adjustment, though.
