    Default Headlamp just collapsed inside!!!

    Well, my headlamps seemed like they aimed a little too high, so thought I'd park up and adjust them a little, no too tricky... or so I thought...

    So I'm turning the little bolt thing... headlamps not moving???

    So I keep turning...

    CRACK! The WHOLE inside of the headlamp just dropped inside, just fell! So now my beam aims at the ground and to the on coming traffic! Even better!! DOH!

    So I get home to have a play, see what I can do... Problem is... Its pitch black and I cant see anything!

    So eventually I've managed to get the headlamp off... Only for the darn 501 Sidelight to decide to fall out inside the headlamp! I can hear it rattling around inside, but for the life of me I cant see it! Then the indicator holder decides it doesnt want to fit back in the hole!!

    So... in closing... DONT BUY (SWEAR FILTER) HEADLAMPS FROM EBAY!

    I've just spent the last 45mins taking of my really pants SRI headlamps, to put my original chrome ones on...

    OMG do I need a drink and I would of by now... but I've got to pick the Bird and her mates up from the cinema at 22.15! Arggghhhhhh!

    At least I've got headlights, just no sidelights...

    Rant over!

    I snapped the screw in some agila dark style head lamps and had the exact prblem you've had, beam aiming at the ground!

    I swaped the internal parts over, and didn't have to take th elens off, did it all from the back...
