failed my nct (irish car text) for dimmed beam being too high, remember reading a thread here on adjusting the level of the beam but cant for the hell of me find it.

just dont want to be breaking something while messing with the light.

Have a look in the service manual. I'm pretty sure I've seen a guide on how to adjust the headlight beams.
There are basically two screws to fiddle with... I think.

Its really easy mate, i did mine a few nights ago.

Open your bonnet and look at the headlight. At the back of the lights there are 4x adjustment screws (2 for main, and 2 for dipped beams). Ust an 8mm ratchet spanner if you have one available.
The top screws adjust the high/low position, and the bottom ones do the left/right position. Once you've had a go and think their in a decent position, go for a short drive and all will become clear!

I havent got any pics of the lights to show where the screws are, but will get some tomorrow if you cant find them. Once you've sussed it, it will take a couple of minutes to do, and it looks so much better at night when their adjusted properly.
