I just installed HID's, so I need to adjust mine down and would prefer to not take off the lamps each time.

I tried using a torxs (spelling?) screwdriver that I have, but it doesnt work too well. I thought I saw someone use a philips head, but any of my longer screwdrivers will not fit into the little line up hole.

I dont see how a flat head will work at all on the 2011s... Anyone else know what to use? There is probably a proper tool for it, but I am guessing there must be a torx or philips that will do the job.

Thanks all

Bump on the #2 philips. Even a short one will work. I used a 6" one and was able to turn it with my finger tips.
