W126 Headlight Adjustment Help

Drivers side headlight viewed from inside the engine bay, there are three adjustment knobs. Right, top and left (seems simple enough). I turned them all and didn't see the light beam move. As I pulled out of the gargage the beam is now aimed way too high. I tried readjusting but couldn't figure out which knob I turned to get the aim so out of whack. Which knob controls what direction?

Middle knob is headlight vertical, outside knob is headlight horizontal, inside know is foglight (at least that's how it works on my 126).

Thanks. I'll get my 13mm socket out again and readjust.
