How do I adjust the headlights on a 2004 Taurus?

My low beam seems to adjusted to high. How hard is it to correct this problem?

First has this vehicle ever been wrecked, or have the headlights been replaced previously? If not the headlights should be fine... But if there is reason to believe they are off, here is what you do...
Find a building with level ground for atleast 25ft away. Measure from the center of your headlight to the ground. Then make a line on the wall the same distance from the ground to center of the headlight.
Turn your headlights on. Watch for the bottom of the brightest part of the beam to line up with the line you made on the wall. If both sides are not identical in height, turn the upper octagon shaped stud till they are even with the line.
If they are not in line with the vehicle, turn the lower stud till they are straight ahead of or slightly off to the right of the center of the vehicle... You can use a laser level for this. Just put the level in the middle of the headlight and turn it on.. Level it up, and shoot the beam, see where the lights are at..
Or you can take it to your local Ford dealer and they can hook up their headlight aiming system and charge you a small fortune, but the lights will be where they are supposed to be....
