How to adjust fog light aim

Hi folks, I've got a 2013 pre-facelift 535iX with the standard fog lights in the front bumper:

However, one of the fog lights seems to be aiming too high, and I'm wondering if there is any way to adjust their aim?

For example, the main headlights can be adjusted up and down by turning a special screw under the hood. Is there anything like this for the fog lights, or any other method I could use?

You may want to pull off the grill just to ensure they are properly located. there is a tab that fits into a hole on the inner side of the light and the outside tab must properly fit into a slot on the outside.

Check that they fit tight.

Thanks, the both of you, for your suggestions!

I've checked and confirmed that my fog lights are correctly attached with the tab inserted into the slot, and they are firmly bolted on with the two bolts on the side.

@wcr3d - the link you've provided shows how to adjust the aim using a special adjusting screw that I didn't know existed - that's exactly what I needed! Thanks for providing the link to that website, it looks like a great resource.
