Stupid 147 lights!
just (hopefully!) a quick one. The headlamp adjuster motors in my 147 are going mental at the moment. I've already replaced one because it burned out. Now both of them are trying to adjust themselves past the end position they should go to, but in opposite directions!
I haven't notice much because I rarely drive on dark roads any more, but I was on a country road last night, and it was both embarrassing and dangerous. My outside light was pointing to the sky, while the inside headlight was about 4 feet in front of the car. I've always been the type to complain bitterly about drivers with misaligned headlamps, I don't want to become one myself!
Am I missing something important about changing these motors? I've removed them, cleaned them up and replaced them. Is there some alignment I should make to them when I install them, or should they self-align like I would expect?
Thanks for any help you can give.
