Does any1 know how the adjusters function. How do they move the projection of the bulb. I can see the 2 tubes that come out from the adjuster and go to the headlights.

the 2 tube comming out are like big nuts. the headlight mouts screw into. now if you loosen the screw then its going to push out that section causeing it to move up or down, or left or right, and you can screw it in to do the oppasit,

Its the actual adjuster inside the car underneath the steering wheel. It has two pipes going to the headlights, one to the left and one to the right. when i got the car it had its pipes cut so i thought i would replace them. on the headlight there is a small needle from which the pipe inserts. so when i went to a scrapyard to get a relacement i cut the pipes directly after the needle and a small amount of fluid came out. i have no idea how this works, do i have to put fluid in them, or is this just condensation?

i think thats condensation, i have no idea what your talking about about needles and cutting.... what year is the car? cause as far as i know its just 2 plastic knobs and you can unscrew them and screw them in and no fluid comes out....

Its a 1989 325i. See the part you are talking about that screws in and out, the needle is on that and the pipe hooks onto it. It is the smiley version of headlights.
