Headlamp height adjuster
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:03:44 PM »
I have just changed the headlamp bulb on my Galaxy which I have just bought and found
1. the headlamp assy is loose at the bottom. I guess this is because someone couldn't get the bottom screws back in..
2. the lens assy flops up and down when you tough it from inside the headlamp.
Is it possible the adjuster motor has simply come un clipped or is it likely to be more sinister?
I guess either way I am going to have to take the unit out?

Hello and  [W4] to the forum.

There is a ball & socket joint between the headlamp leveller and the reflector, it may just need pushing back on and yes easier to take headlamp assembly out to do this.

They don't normally come apart unless it's been broken or been apart and not been put back together properly.
