147 Turismo 2005 X1 Headlight Level Motor continuously activated

Anyone got any suggestions about my o/s headlight remote level / alignment motor going all the time ( ignition on / engine running ) The nylon gears must of worn / spinning on the spindle because the headlight doesn't move.
When operating the switch inside nothing is working even the n/s headlight level / alignment motor, ( maybe that ones burnt out by now ? )
This is something I don't ever use as it is only if you are loaded up or towing a trailer.
I want to isolate the motor/s so not to create a fault on the 'can' diagnostics, if it is linked. If any one can help as I don't have a wiring diagram.

It's the height adjuster motor running. There is a fix here:


I had this on my GT. The 147 and GT headlights are identical internally and I bought a used147 headlight on ebay and swapped the motor. It is much easier to remove the headlight and repair on the bench. You will need to check the beam height anyway
