How to adjust OEM 300C headlights?

Hey, I finished my front end conversion a while ago and my HID's are FINALLY coming. How do you adjust the headlight beams horizontally (left and right) on the OEM 300C projectors?

I would be interested in that answer also because I couldn't see anything to do that type of adjustment, up and down for the headlights and fog lights isn't a problem but I haven't found out how to adjust the lights left or right.

Wow really?! joey thats the up and down aim. I cant believe that chrysler did that! My beams converge at a distance and im pretty sure they are supposed to be parallel.

Actually this one IS for left and right adjustment. I looked at my car today and there it was L<-->R adjustment. You need a star-tipped screwdriver but it's only like an inch or so down that hole, you'll see it, can't miss it. .....at least this is true for the 300C or SRT models with the stock headlights, not sure about Touring models....

Nik.. im sure the L/R refers to which way you turn it

but when you turn the screw, the projector actually moves in/out, like a focus

the in/out movement causes the light output to be up/down

There's actually another screw that is below the one pictured in the little plastic housing that is horizontal which adjusts the up/down of the light. At least, that's what my headlights have, I don't know about other models.
