Default Adaptive Headlight Broken Mount - 05-17-2020, 10:58 AM

First of all I appreciate any input, and I'll post my trials and tribulations later but as a preview, J.B. Weld is the bomb.

I tore down the headlight assembly, apparently, the ball & socket joints to the manual adjustments and servo are pretty flimsy as I have seen many posts of people with the same issues.

But after I put (not quite) everything back together my car is somewhat cross-eyed. Can this be fixed with coding or do I need to tear down the assembly and adjust the servo manually? What "registery keys" control the left/right servo?

As another option, seems to be a stepper motor, I should be able to advance it if I knew what voltage it takes, but that might be just as much trouble as tearing it down again & repositioning.

Thanks In Advance,
