E31 Headlight Adjustment

I did a search but cannot find instructions for adjusting my 840 headlights. Where are the adjusters?

The odds are that with any US 8 series that your adjusters are broken. If they are not they will break when adjustment is attempted.

Here is a site for replacing broken adjusters that will show you where all the bits are located. http://bmw8.us/Headlight%20adjuster%...ons%20last.pdf

If the headlights feel loose and bounce around the adjusters are definitely broken. BMW no longer supplies the repair kit they have listed in the ETK. I think it has been back ordered for several years now.
