Firstly, they only move if the headlights are on. If they are on but the motors are not moving then chances are the leveling sensor inside the headlight has failed - quite common :(

Also no, the wheel isn't indented it should move freely.

Same with mine but I got to it too late the track on varistor is knackered so no fixing it. Use the guide by mirez ASAP to save you from changing motors.

You won't see any errors in VCDS as they aren't monitored and unfortunately they do tend to go at the same time due to the nature.
