    Gently ease the internal of the headlight down wards whilst holding the motor ball joint under the groove.. That way the ball joint will connect with the clamp.

    It doesn't matter what setting the level is, it sorts itself out when the motor is fixed in position.

    oh no this happened to me, when i was trying to change headlight bulb i took the motor out by mistake, took me ages to get it back in but unsure if its in right, it happened on the passenger side, what do you think, is it a bit high or looks ok?
    anyway to check head light pattern/height?
