Hey can anyone help me with what ought to be an easy question. What is the size and type of tool to adjust the headlights? It looks like a star socket, but I prefer not to buy a whole set of star sockets since this looks like the only thing I would use it for. So, anyone know what size it is so I can just buy that one? High beam headlight is up in the right hand sky and lamps are installed properly. Any tips on adjustment would be helpful too.

PS - I searched threads but could not find an answer to this question

I have the bit......but what's wrong with a set of needle nose plyers and some patients? If you're headlights are that bad and you don't want to buy the part just use plyers.

No special tool dude, either the bit holder or (i think) a 7mm socket is fine.

The adjustment screws themselves are torx... And what I mean is the screw head itself is torx, not that you need a torx tool to move them.
