I asked several garages to align my lights during the first round of services
I had done. They all said they'd done it (_including_ BR Motorsport) and I
could never see a difference. Finally I dismounted the lights, put them on a
bench, and tried every cross-head screwdriver in my possession on the adjusters.
(I have a lot of cross-head screwdrivers. Or at least a lot of bits.)
None would turn any of the adjusters, with the single exception that I could
move one of the H1 driving reflectors one way but not the other. They were all
so burred out that no screwdriver would grip them.
I ordered 8 new brass adjuster screws (# 855 941 141A) and 8 new press-on clips
to hold the adjuster levers in place on the end of them (# 855 941 135) from
The Parts Department - total cost GBP20.88, or $32. I have Cibies - YMMV. I
cut off the old clips, wound out the old adjusters with a variety of evil
gripping instruments, spread liberal amounts of graphite grease on the new
adjusters, and wound 'em in. You can push the clips over the ends with a 6mm
Wow! Real _ADJUSTABLE_ lights!
