You'll need a long, thin screw driver. Look for a small hole in the metal frame that runs above the top of the headlight. It's not marked or anything but it's the only hole there. When you find the hole you'll see there is actually another hole about 1/4 inch below that one. Not beside it, but directly below. If you shine a bright light you'll see at the bottom of the hole(s) a portion of a small notched wheel sticking out. You need to get the flat screw driver against the notches (one at a time) and turn the wheel. I made marks on the garage door where the brightest spot of the headlight was shining and then made the adjustment from there.
Neither the dealer nor another garage could figure it out. I figured I'd try to find a hole like my Avalon has and by gosh there it was. You'd never think that hole would be used for headlight adjustments, but once you see that notched wheel you'll get the hang of it.
There's no reason why Toyota couldn't have printed directions in the manual for this.
