My headlight is pointing into the trees. The pivot lever and adjusting knob have gone missing. BMW does not carry this part,must buy entire headlight housing. Has anyone had to overcome the same issue? I am good at rigging things,but sometimes doing it right is better.
Thanks :confused:

This may be too late to help you but I had the same issue on my 09 1300GT. I found that the lever and center part (where the knob is supposed to be) will pull out. Set them aside and use a small plier to "unscrew" the shaft. It will come back quite a ways but will not actually come out. I then re-installed the previously removed bits and drilled a small radio knob to fit the adjustment shaft. It was secured with two set screws. Then just crank it back in and the headlight will come down.
