Once the adjuster mechanism gets out of whack internally, you really need the assembly out on the bench. Used headlights that old are a roll of the dice, but the 850 reflectors don't seem to degrade as much as the -70 series.454cid wrote: ↑05 Jul 2022, 05:10 Messed with this some more yesterday. With a flashlight, I could just barely see the point of disconnection on for the reflector. I was able to reconnect it, but it doesn't stay well. This leads me to believe that it may be worn or cracked. It's a bit strange that I can't seem to get the same reading on the bubble level that the other headlight is adjusted to. I run out of adjustment. I did get it better..... I found my core support was not fully secure and tightened the bolt down just behind the corner light. It could be this is remnant from a collision, as I do see signs of bodywork (over spray).
I'm contemplating trying to get a used light, or set of lights, and maybe a set of e-code lenses. I've also thought about going aftermarket with TYC lights or Pro-Parts, but I'm a bit leery of that since other TYC headlights are known to not have reflectors with good optics. I could also just see if that connection holds, and not worry about it unless it doesn't.
I've had good luck with TYC as well, but like abscate on a V70. I personally wouldn't buy ProParts, unless they made a dogfood dish or something.
