Headlamp Broken?

I'm trying to lower my headlamps because they're glaring at people (I haven't got around to do projectors) and I noticed that my right passenger side headlamp won't move anymore. Only my left one. Would I have to replace the whole headlamp?

Re: Headlamp Broken?

Check the back of the headlamp unit where you twist for tilt. Sometimes the plastic piece breaks and you have to turn that by hand.

Re: Headlamp Broken?

The upper bolt/screw is for left/right adjustment, the lower bolt/screw is for up/down adjustments.

Oh I thought the upper was for high beam adjustment.

Re: Headlamp Broken?

Each adjuster in the back of the headlights have a 10mm bolt already on it in the center. You can use the ratchet to rotate clock and counterclock to adjust if the teeth on the knob have worn off or been grinded down.
