    head light alignment nackerd!!

    Hey guys, another problem, im full of them!!

    my headlight alignment is way out, my driverside light is pointing up asif its in the up position, ive been trying for about a hour to get it back down and it aint happening, ive taken out the adjustment thing which moves in and out and it seems to be working right, but just not having much or even any effect when its fitted, when i move them from the switch inside the car, u can still hear the motor in the driverside for the tilting mechenism working for about half a second after the passenger side has finished, any ideas ?

    Sounds like the ball on the end of the motor rod isn't correctly seated in the channel on the back of the reflector - so it's pushing it too far forward and up.

    Have another go in the daylight - look in the hole where the motor sits and you'll see how it all fits toghther

    Also check the bulb holder. Mine had one of it's 3 "legs" broken off my previous owner which I didn't spot when I changed my bulbs. This meant the bulb changed direction everytime I went over a bump, remove the bulb and check the holder to see if it's damaged. New holder costs around £4.
