I was trying to adjust my headlights today, and noticed the driver side was just flopping around. I pulled it out using a 9mm socket on the retainers and the adjuster for the up/down (the inner most adjuster) as well as the retainer directly above it were not in the adjuster base anymore. See pic...


So I took those two torx screws out, and tried to re-insert them into the adjuster, no luck.

So I'm assuming the adjuster is broken? Is this something I can replace at the auto parts store, or do I need to pull ones off a headlight at the junkyard (assuming I can find a good one)?

Or is it time for a new headlight assembly? They're not foggy/scratched up. I'd like to keep them if I can.

This looks different than the adjusters on my '94 T-Bird.

Auveco makes/sells automotive clips, screws, connectors, headlight adjusters, etc. Their catalog has thousands of products. If you don't have a part number, finding the part you need can be a challenge.

Good luck, man. Finding small parts can be a real PITA.

That's because mine is a 97. Different headlight design, different adjusters.

I'll check it out. I was on the way to the salvage yard to see if I could scrounge some, but that was the day my oil line decided to let go.

Two of the longish ones with an adjuster and a secure post in them please.
