headlight aim screw

I needed to have a headlight replaced recently. I didnt have the tools to do it myself so one of the guys I work with did it for me. When I got back in my car the aim was too low. I opened the hood to find the aim screw completely stripped!
Can this be fixed?

Wow, that sucks. I'm guessing you tried to turn it both ways to be sure its stripped.

Oh and uh, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the welcome!

I didnt turn anything! I saw that it was messed up and left it alone. I got on the mac and started searching for some help.
Do I have to replace the whole headlight assembly?

you can take it out pretty easy, I would take it out and look at it. If it is stripped, you might take some pliers and try to turn it up a little.
