Headlight beam

The headlights on the Spider seem to be facing the ground rather than central to the road. Took the units out and noticed the aim mechanism had detached from the motor in the light unit. Reseated them and now they adjust, I think, as they should. However the left hand light still appears to be lower than the right or it could be the right higher.... Any ideas?

There are diagonal beam adjustment on most cars(2 screws per side). I do mine in a dark car park, but take it to a MOT station and pay? Its common for the hight motor link to detach on any car, I lost count the times I had to do it!

A long shot...... Under the rubber dust cover, where the bulb inserts, there is a metal slider that allows the beam to be flattened for driving on the continent (or in the UK for a continental car) check that this has not moved
