E46 headlight level sensor

So.. 2004, 330ci Convertible.

Green light flashing on headlight switch, I track it down to the level sensor on pass side of car, the arm is broken.. I replace the unit, though admittedly the elect connection was a little stubborn getting off. Turn ign on, and now.. only the drivers side levels, the pass side does not move. (Prior to replacing sensor, both sides moved). Unplugged again, to ensure pins were not bent. They are not.. So, where do i go from here? ?

I did a search, and couldn't find anything..
