Question about 1991 Mazda 323

1 Answer

Left headlight won't rise without coercion.

Hey guys. A friend of mine drives a 1991 Mazda 323 Astina. Since an incident with an animal that led to her left headlight being replaced, when it is turned on, it only rises a few inches. This issue is solved by a punch square to the back left of the headlight. Can anyone provide some advice as to how to repair this? I expect I could get it with just fiddling until it worked, but it would be nice if anyone could give me some specific details. Many thanks!

Try removing it again and see if theres a dent somewhere inside the housing that makes it rougher for the light to retract and check the motor that winds it it might be out of alignment

Find level ground with a wall. Drive up to the wall and mark where the centre of your headlights are on the wall with a piece of tape. Back up 20 feet and turn your headlights on high beam. Using the adjusting knobs make each light shine directly on the spot. Low beam adjusts itself down and to the left/right (away from oncoming traffic depending on what side of the road you drive on)
