headlight aim

I justed installed XenonDepot's 4300K HID conversion kit and the right headlight seems to be aimed a bit too low. There are two adjustment screws on either side of the round-domed dust cap behind the projector light... the one on the radiator side aims the projector up and down... anyone know what the adjustment screw tucked in the fender do? i backed it off a few turns and it didn't seem to do anything...

if you look carefully at the pattern, you'll see that a part of the projector is blocking the light pattern (it's a thin line at the bottom). look for this and you'll see which way your adjustments are going (L-R).
