Do Depo Headlights have the same plastic adjustors as OEM headlights? Help!

I recently purchased a 2003 M5 that came with Depo Headlights. The lights were pointed way to low, even with the automatic adjustment on start up. The passenger side was easy to raise and is now perfect. However while adjusting the drivers side, it only went about half way up. When the lights are turned on I can see both automatic adjustors working but the drivers side is still too low. Ive changed the plastic adjustors on OEM lights before, I am curious if anyone knows if Depo headlghts have the same plastic adjustors?

I believe Depot 'headlights' are just headlight covers. The adjusters should be the same as stock. Your factory headlight adjuster is probably just broken and needs to be replaced.
