need some straight answers on headlight adjusters

hey guys,

i know this topic is well covered but i feel like i've got conflicting information from all the threads i read in my search.

i have a 2003 540i (2/03 production) with the stock OEM xenon auto level headlights.

i recently removed the headlight assemblies to do the headlight polishing DIY.

I've got them back in and all the lights work but now when i turn on the headlights, they do not "pop up" like they did before.

i am looking for simple answers to these questions;

1. how can i definitively determine that the problem is the broken adjusters?

2. considering it is a 2003 car and the headlights cannot be opened, assuming it is the adjusters, can they still be replaced or otherwise fixed or do i need to buy whole new headlight assemblies.

that would suck considering all the time and effort i put into polishing them just to have to buy new ones anyway.
