Adjusting projector headlights?

Hey guys,so I've hooked up my projector headlights and everything works great! Except for one thing,I can't adjust the pricks!
I'm (ass-u-me-ing) the adjusters are the Phillips (for low beams)and the flathead(high beam).
I didn't realize how tight it was in there! Now I'm hoping that a few of you fine gentlemen have some tips,because the only thing I can think of is to drop my bumper and keep taking out the headlights,then clipping them back on until there corrected!
I've looked for a how to,but came up short handed.
Thanks guys (and gals)

I used a 1/4in. drive ratchet wrench with like a 10" or 12" extension and a swivel on the end. I think it was a 10mm socket that fit it. it also had the Phillips and flathead that your talking about but I could also use a socket on mine.

Yes I believe there are two screws for each light(2 for low,2 for high beam) as for which one adjusts left to right,side to side,I can't remember. Mine still have to be adjusted. There a little hard to adjust. When I get time,I might just drop my bumper and adjust them that way(take it out,adjust it,then clip it back in and check it) I actually think I have to pop my lenses off and adjust or set them properly. Hope you don't have to do that! Good luck.
