    Exclamation Headlight Purchase ISSUE

    I purchased via Ebay used SRI Headlights (Pre Facelift) Seller used them for less then 3 months (newly purchased by him Oem dont look genuine)

    I realised the the projector ball is not sitting in the housing at all, you can see around and inside the projector housing into the headlight. Would I need to take the headlight apart to fix this problem? Can it be fixed I tried giving it a wedge with a headlight inside it and would move but not settle inside the house as in a good fit as it seems like it needs to be placed within it

    Can someone help / does this require removing the headlight and making sure the projector is fitted ?

    This is the problem with both headlights ones worse then the other and its with the adapter in and obviously with it out its worse

    Going to a little hard as my Iphone is in for repairs only Camera I have.

    To explain myself again - The projector ( Ball ) is not a nice fit around the housing. If you look at the headlight you can see the top right had corner above the housing itself and you can see around quite clearly into the headlight when look at the headlight

    Is the headlight alignment motor fitted? When this is fitted correctly is stops the inside moving. Not sure this is your issue but lost without pics
