Default Adjusting HID lights ?

98 A8 with the HID's and the drivers side light is aimed too low. What is the procedure to aim the light? Thanks.

Also how do you remove the HID light? Someone installed a blueish kiddie looking one on the left and I'd like to put a stock bulb/unit on that side.

You need a vag com to adjust the headlights, there are two white adjusting screws on top of the headlight assembly that actually adjust the beam, but the computer will just re-set the original setting after you cycle the key unless you "tell" it you're adjusting them. See for vag com info and cables, it also has the procedure to adjust the lights on that site.
