Had the dealer change the drivers side headlight bulb (did not have the time to do it myself). Now it seems to point too low...any suggestions on fixing the problem. I thought I read somewhere that there are three positions for the bulb. can you help me out..thanks

There's a DIY guide on www.sorentosite.com for adjusting your headlights. Very detailed.

Just a suggestion from experience. There is an index tab on the low beam H7 light bulb, it is possible to insert, even with this tab, into headlight housing 180° upside down. The result is low beam is pointing downward. Have plenty of experience changing my own low beams, 6 times so far, and did this once on one headlight. Can not blame anyone except myself on this one.
