One day my passenger side auto-leveling headlight decided to crap out. The level arm on the suspension is fine and the sensor is also good.

So I was kind of stumped until I decided to pop open the top of the headlight and check if somehow the xenon bulb dislodged. But when I tried to unhook the electrical plugins, I noticed that the projectors inside the housings moved up and down freely like they were no longer attached to the auto-leveling mechanism. I also noticed that there seem to be what looked like plastic clips at the bottom moving around.

I've searched and haven't found any threads with the same problem... can anyone help a brotha out?

BTW this is a facelift coupe bi-xenon.

TIA

you probably hit something and it caused the motor to violently move up/down causing probably the connector to break or something along those lines.
+1. cant think of any other way this could happen
