    Default AFL playing up - car is squinting

    The AFL light started flashing and upon inspection the passenger side AFL lens is squinting. If I hit it, it starts buzzing and moving a bit, but won't stay in the same position as the other one.

    Ideas?

    It had to happen, a signum with a lazy eye

    Has one of the motors maybe jammed?

    Probably mate, but how do I check that? Do I have to remove the whole headlight?

    It fixed itself after I drove over a huge pothole on the italian motorway at 130km/h. Good as new now...

    BTW: Replaced the bulbs in my AFLs last year, and tried to understand the mecanics in these lights. Well, I didnt Its very very very thight. Anyway I removed front bumper and then the headlight - surprisingly easy task - done in 10 minutes including searching for all screws. Still all the mecanics is pretty much hidden inside the cluster, who does not look like it is designed to be taken apart... Ill guess the day this mecanics stops working, it will be an expensive day!

    The insides are fairly easy to understand, on the facelift anyway. One motor moves the whole interior up and down, and another moves the main beam left and right. Combining the two gives full movement and adjustment available. I've got the pictures here should anyone need them...

    It could just be that it's come off the joint inside the headlight which attaches it to the motor. Take the headlight off, remove the back cover and you should be able to see what's going on...

    Shall do Martin, but do I have to remove the bumper in order to remove the whole headlight?
