Headlight adjustment and specs

Recently I brought the B in for an inspection; all went well, except for my headlights are not adjusted to proper height or angle (passed anyway). I know that the adjustment screws are behind the chrome ring around the headlight, but what are the proper specs for height and for their left to right angling direction. If you could include a measurement also as to how far I need to be away from the wall when I do the adjustment, that would be much appreciated.

As always thanks for any help.

I asked this question a while ago and didn't get a definitive answer from the group - a few links to some generic auto electrical sites which suited me fine.

Daniel Stern has a similar chart on his site as well.

As mentioned by Mac - DanielSternLighting.com has the necessary aiming procedure. Note that it differs depending on whether you have DOT style lenses or E-Code beams. If you don't have E-code, do yourself a favour and get some. I like Cibie, but there are other options as well.
