    Unhappy Pre-facelift headlight adjusters - I snapped one off

    I was replacing the side light bulb on the nearside when I removed the cover for the headlight adjustment motor and managed to snap off one of the white plastic bits (long plastic bar) that I guess are used for doing the adjustment.

    Please help, how easy is it for me to reinstate, if at all?

    The white plastic bar has a ball on the end which locates in a socket on the hinged flap inside the light. If you remove the adjustment motor which is a bayonet type fitting so just turn anticlockwise. Its a bit fiddley but you can engage the ball and socket then refit the motor turning clockwise. HTH

    Thanks for the reply. Apologies, I didn't make a good job of describing the issue. The removable bit is fine (the bit with the ball), it's the long bar which is attached the the clip that the ball slots into that has came off (it should be a permanent fixture of the headlamp).
