just take a long phillips head screwdriver and put it straight down b/t the little hole in the frame of the car (immediately after the headlight housing) (in the upper tie bar) and keep going until it touches the gears. I think that one (on the outside more) adjusts the up and down. To go left and right (which might be up or down), go more from the middle of the car, near the grille, at angle to teh headlight.

If you are standing looking at the headlights from the front of the car, point the screwdriver at about a 45 degree angle to the left and you'll find the adjustment on thh left headlight (ur left b/c ur looking at it from the front) close to where the light frame narrows.

If this isn't good enough, post another thread and i'll help best i can.

So, do I need the hood open to do this? I "think" I follow you but maybe not.
The adjustments will be made from the front of the car.........correct?
How long a screwdriver will I need.....about a 6 inch?

Right from the service manual for the 2002-03 Civic Si, the key illustration about adjusting the headlight (I assume that you already know how to determine where they're supposed to be aimed, etc).
Click the image to open in full size.

I'm a long ways away from home right now, so I can't check my EP's owner's manual to see if it has the same thing.

Thanks! Would this also be how the Accords adjust?
