Depending on what pickups you have, you can refer to this from the user manual:

DIMARZIO PICKUPS

Each DiMarzio humbucking pickup is secured to the body by two hex-head screws. On the coil, closer to the bridge, the mounting screw is the screw under the B string. On the coil, closer to the neck, the mounting screw is the screw under the A string. Turn the screws clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen.

To adjust pickup height, unscrew both pickup mounting screws. Raise or lower your pickup to the desired position with your fingers. Retighten both pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup. Do not over tighten.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN PICKUPS

Each Seymour Duncan pickup is secured to the body by two slotted screws. These mounting screws are located under the E strings on the outside coils. Turn the screws clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen. To adjust pickup height, unscrew both pickup mounting screws. Raise or lower your pickup to the desired position with your fingers. Retighten both pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup. Do not over tighten pickup mounting screws flush with top of pickup.

I’d be inclined to loosen completely and shim it underneath before retightening.
