Headlight level sensor

Can somebody post a pic of the Headlight Level sensor installed on your vehicle. I am aware the pivot ball mounts to the tie rod. I am looking for the location for the sensor bracket itself to the body of the car or ? wherever the heck it goes.

Or a diagram of the location would help too

2006 330xi

I bought this car with that missing & I can't for the life of me figure out where to mount it.

.

[HERE] is the level control sensor for the front axle, your model.

Think this is how it looks:





Not 100% sure - not intimately familiar with xi suspension.

Pc 1 & Pc 8 both labeled level sensor look quite different.

There's no accounting for taste. Frankly one looks like the rear sensor, attached to be camber arm.
