The up and down movement of the headlights is not tied to the adjusters but level sensor attached to the right (passenger side) control arm. See picture. It may have been detached during repairs and not connected back or the adjuster arm might have broke.

Right side: xenon lights: Disconnect level sensor regulating rod joint. Counter hold inside nut and remove outside nut (needle nose pliers, 10mm socket 1/4" / 1/4" ratchet). Remove bolt and rotate regulating rod (link) to be adjacent with control arm.

You'll see it as part number 37146784697 under Real-Oem
