    Hi,

    I have just noticed that my passenger side headlamp is missing an adjuster :(

    The parts cirlced below are not there, and just a shaft is left where the toothed wheel should be, meaning the the lights wobble when going over bumps etc.

    Is it possible to attach another adjuster? Or do I need a whole new headlamp?

    If the later, has anyone got one going spare?


    Cheers,

    ICE

    gear wheels are pressed on in an automatic press station.

    even if you had the two gear wheels, its unlikely you would get the larger one onto the stud without breaking the headlight further.

    Does any one know the part number for a passenger side facelift headlamp? :ohmy:

    I thought the lights were a little low...

    UPDATE:

    Have used a couple of zip ties to hold the stud in position - so far so good.

    Would still like to know the part number for a passenger side facelift headlamp
