Adjusting Headlamps, Mechanism Broke Off

Post by MrAl » Sat Nov 09, 2019 9:25 am

Hello,

Following Robert's video the knob would not turn so i used a 10mm socket wrench.
Turning clockwise, the whole mechanism broke right off making it impossible to adjust the headlamps.

What went wrong and how to fix it?

If i had to guess i would say that the mechanism works ok (turns) but the headlamp itself is not able to move so it broke when turned.

Thanks.

Hello again,

Does anyone know how the tilt pivot works?
Does it pivot on some pin or something so the light can tilt up or down?

Thanks.
