    Hey guys. I have a slight issue when trying to adjust my head lights; the passenger side light has no adjuster so it points to the floor!! The pics below shown the story.

    Do anyone know where i can source an adjuster or have a spare one they would like to send me?!

    I have the same problem on mine, I drove to Vindis Audi in Cambridge hoping to buy a replacement wheel from the parts dept. After about 30mins of waiting for one of the service guys to 'have a look' they promptly informed me it would be a whole new light cluster!

    Was about £600 or something for one light unit!!

    So I made my own adjuster, seems to do the trick and it passed it's MOT with no problems! I broke an old electrical wall socket, araldited one of the brass terminals to the plastic housing, and then used the screw to clamp the adjusting pin.

    Not the prettiest solution, but it was free, and it works fine!

    those adjusters are bloody useless and always break. Whomever designed that nylon wheel arrangement should have a quiet word with themselves.

    Best bet is to fabricate a reliable replacement like joshxs.
