It's hard to see, but the adjusters are at the rear of the headlamp's
mounting bracket, which is bolts to the rad support. the holes for the
adjusting screwdriver are in the top of the rad support. If you peer into
them with a flashlight, you'll see their little gears.

The two adjusters have long screws that attach to swivels on the
reflector's plastic body. If the swivel breaks, the headlamp will come
forward, as that's all that's keeping it in place.
This is why I originally asked if the car had been smacked; that's
generally how they break. They may not "let go" right away, but may take a
while to crack free completely.

Personally, when I ask questions and receive no answer, I just tear into
the job anyway, figuring that if nobody knows the answer, I'd better find
out for myself. If in serious doubt, I'll spend the $10 to get the
information I need from https://techinfo.honda.com

I originally delayed answering because I wanted to take a look at a spare
headlamp I've got in the shed, but then I forgot about it.
