    Yes it is but you can not use a male torx like you can on the HID light adjustment of the standard Escalade, you have to use the female or external torx socket size E8, screwing in or down raises the lights if memory serves me correct, you just have up and down adjustment

    Just adjusted my non-platinum headlights this weekend. They were both way too high. I used a bit driver handle to make the adjustment. It fit the adjustment posts very snugly. I believe bit driver bits are 1/4"
