Question about BMW 528
I was adjusting my headlights because they were facing to far down, and as i was turning and watching the headlight move up, the track the the light runs on to raise/lower (about 3 inches long, white, only about 1/2 inc thick with teeth on one side) broke into several pieces. So now when i drive my headlight faces even further down and wabbles when i hit bumps. Anyone know if there is a repair kit, or how i could repair this without buying a new headlight assembly for $500?? Any help would be appreciated!

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.
This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

Good question to apply to your dealer. Look at Carsurvey. org also. I believe it was a poor design allowing either too much moisture and/or vibration.
