    There is a plugy thing that just clips into the back of the lights, i think its the only plug has a wrinkled tube going from it (holding the wires) not very well explained but... Basically its the only plug that goes into the back of the headlight, just unclips.

    When I did mine i jacked the front of the car up turned the lights on they adjusted themselves up then I unplugged them, and adjusted them up a little bit more using the white screws just do it against a wall so you can see, was pretty easy.

    Yes pretty much what everyone else says, did mine 6months ago after only being able to see 5foot in front of me and still perfect.

    Well you have to remove the battery cover and the one on the other side. It goes into a small sort of box thing, look quite hard it would be easy to think it was all one part but it just unclips. Its directly below the white screw (the one nearer the middle of the car)

    The adjusters arm is on the back left suspension arm and mine has snapped that's worked for me.
