Mein Auto:
E34 driving lights - rotate?

Hello

I'm looking for some help on how to rotate driving lights as they are a bit tilted to the right and so the light shines higher on the left if I park up and shine light on a wall. How do I rotate my lights to get them even and level ?

Try this sounds like the passenger side beam is just too low.

Hay thanks your reply

I must be a moron or something because that link wasn't exactly very clear - I'm not sure I understand it completely- and it's not just my passenger light, both beams are like a 45 degree V in shape and seems to point the left ( the higher part in both beams is pointing up to the left like to L's on an angle look at this and Tilt your phone or screen to your left a little bit ( L L )

That link seemed pretty straight forward to me.
net net is that all 4 lights are adjustable.
First you adjust each of the low beams to get them set properly....there is an up and down screw and a left and right screw for each head light.

Yes yes but I don't need to move them left or right or up or down I need to rotate them.

I have my driver's side headlight assembly out of my car and on the bench. I just went out and looked at it.
Both headlights are held into their mounts and the only adjustments I see are the two adjusting screws as mentioned previously for each of the lights.

What do you mean when you say you want to rotate them?

Okay well I'm starting to think they are meant to be the way they are but it just feels weird to me one side of the projection of my lights is higher on one side, I will upload a pik to illustrate my light projection
