    Vehicle : Opel Vectra C

    Trim : Estate F35, Elegance

    Engine : Y22DTR

    Year : 2004

    Default Preface - A question about headlights level motor

    I bought these:



    This is the back of the headlamp:


    This is the room for the motor for level adjustment:


    The seller told me that I can take the motor from the original headlight and put it there.
    I'm wondering if this is true...
    Any help or suggestion is welcome!

    I take it a cover goes over that?

    If you remove the white thing then the motor will go in that hole.....just think there should be a cover to go over the motor though

    Ok then, turn the white cap and then pop the ball joint out from inside the headlight (be careful). Then pop the ball joint of the headlight motor in it's place and turn it motor to lock it into the casing. The little white plug plugs into the motor

    Instead of trying to pop the ball joint together, just angle it slightly, push it so it's in line with the plastic joint and slide it in
