How to aim fog lights?

How do you go on about aiming your fog lights? I've noticed from the beam pattern that one of mine is pointed too much in.

There is a black knob on the back side towards the top of them. Just twist it with your hand while the fogs are on and you'll notice the beam changing.

Thanks. I felt around last night to see if I could even feel it. I felt a screw, or what I think was a screw. I need to jack it up or remove the splash guard because I think its going to be a PITA to adjust them without having full sight of the knob.

Unless someone can show me a picture of where exactly the knob is.

It will help you tremendously to remove the splash guard or bend it back. Ill see if I can get a picture sometime tomorrow.

I circled the knob you need to twist in case you haven't looked yet. Just for future people looking at this thread.

your bracket is prob. cracked....
they only aim up/down with the knob, as you can see in the pic theres a pivot point on either side of were the bulb goes

Dunno how it would be cracked though, I haven't messed with it and the car hasn't been in any wrecks in its life time.

then maybe one of the lil push clips used, came out causing the fog to point in.
