There is in the top of each headlight unit a white screw head that you can turn to lower or higher the beam.
The screw is shown below in the red circle in picture 1 and a close up in picture 2 - it needs to Philips screwdriver to turn.

Thank you for your help to lower what way does the screw need to go right or left to lower them?

If you stand infront of the car facing the windscreen.
Turn the screwdriver right to lower and left to higher.
I've highered the beams on mine, and I used the garage wall to mark where the top of the beam currently was.
Then it took only half a turn on the screwdriver to higher the beam.

This seems crazy! I'm pretty sure every car I've owned over the last 30 years or so has had the ability to adjust the headlamp level from inside the car.

I agree with Speedysteven, the default setting for the dipped beam level does seem to be higher than it should be.

Did any of those cars have LED headlights?
As far as I know only halogen headlights have manual height adjustment within the car.

Ah - good point, Nigel. No they didn't.

Looks like the Arona LED headlamps are self-levelling (they do move about when car is started), but to me, they still seem to end up on the high side when dipped.

I'll have a fiddle with that screw.
