I am not sure I follow...
There is a screw (torx) to adjust up and down, screw it in for down and out for up as I recall. The stud for side to side can be replaced with a screw tha allows you two axis of adjustment, otherwise you likely only get the one.
If the headlight bucket is broken you may need to fix that first.

both axis can be adjusted
the torx screw adjusts up and down.
this can be easily done no disassembly with a torx screw driver .

to adjust side to side you have to remove the grill and headlight
inside the housing there are 2 plastic 13mm?? nut adjustment screw pins left and rt
this is the part that many replace with a new torx screw.
there isn't much room inside the headlight bucket but you can use a wrench to make adjustments without replacing it .
screw out the side that will push the beam in the direction you want
its a pita because you get only like 1/4 turn per wrench bite,and you need to reinstall the headlamp to check aim.
