    Welcome to the forum.
    No need to shout [CAPS LOCK] is the key on the left of your keyboard - you might want to disengage it!

    Auto-levelling of headlights you mean you have a 0/1/2/3 rotary switch next to your headlight switch?
    If yes this is the Adjustable headlight levelling system on some models originally with Halogen lights.
    You can adjust the headlight levels and orientation with the nylon grub screws on top of the headlights however you need to take it to a garage where they can be set-up correctly - any MOT test station will have one.

    It could be that the passenger side (n/s) motor has been dislodged from it's mounting or there is something stopping the internal adjustment frame moving up and down - take the headlight off and have a look inside the headlight. Perhaps the HID fitter should be doing this, you say "...got a HID kit fitted...."? Have a check that the wires ore not broken to the motor also.
