Default How do you adjust the horizontal value of the headlamps?

I recently just got back from my third trip the mechanic that went and repaired my car after colliding with a deer. They replaced the headlamps, however for the left one, all they did was just mount it into the car, and not adjust it horizontally at all.

At the current moment, the left headlamp points outside of the curb road paint, generally onto the grass or whatever lies outside of the road, where the left headlamp points directly in the center of the lane.

I have found where to adjust the vertical pitch for the headlamps, but haven't found the horizontal yet, does anyone know where that would be on a Pontiac Sunfire 2003? Goddamned collision center is really annoying me.

What vehicle? Typically the adjustment screw is on the back of the headlight for horizontal adjustment.

Yeah, its on a pontiac sunfire '03.

I put a ruberized hose washer underneath the passengers head lamp, and that fixed the angle a tiny bit, so, I just need to find that horizontal pitch. If it is on the inner side of the lamp... then, I don't know if I will be able to fix that myself. :\
