Default 96 SC300 Main headlight adjustment

Attn search police - I have searched for this answer, but none are specific enough, and none have accurate pics. Many answers refer to top screw and bottom screw, when in fact both screws are almost parallel.

My question, is the lateral/left right low beam headlighter adjuster the plastic canister with the black screwhead that has R and L printed on it? Or is it the long screw closest to the driver side fender?

And, is the bubble glass depicting up and down?

Thank you.

The lower screw is for left and right. The top is for up and down with the bubble level thingy.

I don't know if the 98's were different, but on my 98 the adjustment screws are positioned closer to the center of the car and further away. In regards to that configuration, the screws further away from the center of the vehicle control height. The adjustment for L/R had a plastic canister on them that also has an L or R written on it.
