How do you adjust the headlamps?
 
Noticed when I pulled in the drive way today my driver side head light is pointed a little down. So I opened the hood to look for an adjusting knob to adjust the headlamp but.....i dont see anything. Its so tight i can even look behind the headlamp to see if there is one there...guess I have to take the lamp off to adjust? If anyone has ever adjusted them let me know.

I drive a 2003 GC body style*

thanks in advance!

thanks mate! Look like it may be a little tedious to adjust the lamp position.....can't believe I have to take off the headlamp to adjust it!

You should be able to adjust the up/down movement with the headlight in place. There is a small hole when looking from above where you can insert a screwdriver.
See attached page.

As Frango mentioned you can adjust the headlamp without removing anything (in back of headlamp assembly). There are, however, steps to take ahead of time, see: Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ - Auto headlamps and headlamp alignment
