I posted this at bimmerfest and got zero responses, so here's hoping you guys can be more helpful...
I noticed my driver's side headlight on my '97 540i seemed to be pointing down, and when I checked the little level thing inside the headlight, sure enough it was. So I saw the adjustment knob just to the aft of the level, and started turning it...and nothing happened. I tried turning it the other way, and all it did was point the headlight even further down. I can't get it to raise up past the point it is already at, if that makes any sense. The adjustment knob turns and turns, but nothing happens. Has anyone ever done this themselves, and if so do you know what this may be? Is the adjuster stripped or something? And if I take it to a dealer, how much are they going to charge me to do a little thing like aim regular halogen headlights?
Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a "Is this deal too good to be true?" thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
