Headlight adjustment screw question.

Are the headlight adjustment screws on my 2008 hatchback Phillips or Robertson? Does anyone know the size?

It is really cold out and I'd rather spend as little time as possible under the hood adjusting them.

Thanks.

Thanks. They're not too bad, just a little high. I've noticed that when I'm accelerating they shine in people's mirrors. I hate it when other people do it to me so I figure I better not be an offender myself.

They weren't hex key for sure. I'm thinking Phillips as well.

philips , had to adjust the drivers side (too low) on '08 YARIS sedan . Came that way from factory . The way the light bounces off the mirrors makes it too focused as well , like a spot light on the road ahead when on high beam ( replaced original bulb(s) with SILVERSTAR , the same with both bulbs , so not the bulb , figure headlight unit defective .) , is a bit distracting . There's a how to under COLLISION REPAIR ( if I remember correct ) of 2007 YARIS FACTORY REPAIR MANUAL on top of page , click on web address of 1st post . Tried to find it again to no avail .

The page in the repair manual is LI-102, but the diagram and descriptive words aren't very detailed.

A Phillips #2 or #3. It's a white knob. Mine were sent from the factory too high.
