Unhappy Headlamp load height adjuster replacement

I was looking to replace my side / parking lights (tiny front facing bulbs between turn indicator and headlight bulb on UK cars) but removed the headlight load height adjuster by mistake.

It came out complete with the ball and socket plastic connector on as well.

Anyone know how to get this back in so it connects correctly as my car needs to be MoT'd before I can use it?

As always is the case the side lights are now fixed. I could clearly see them once the adjuster was out.

Someone posted about this same issue a few months ago, even posted the fix.
But, I can't seem to find the post.

I have since found its called the headlight adjuster motor. Still no luck with a search of the archive though.

Thanks all, PTDog posted a manual that has the part and how to remove and install in it.

Downloaded fine. Excellent help.

Thanks to PTDog.

Cheers everyone. Dave

Quite right LionPT. Haven't done this yet but from what I can see it all sounds right. Was hoping to do it in the car so may be back with some more insight.

LAMPS/LIGHTING - EXTERIOR PT
HEADLAMP LEVELING MOTOR - EXPORT
REMOVAL
(1) Remove headlamp unit
(2) Disconnect headlamp levelling motor electrical
connector.
(3) Rotate levelling motor one quarter turn counter clockwise.
This will free levelling motor housing from
the headlamp unit.
(4) Pull levelling motor straight from headlamp
unit. Significant force will be required to unsnap
motor control arm from lens reflector.
NOTE: The headlamp levelling motor control arm is
snapped into the lens reflector mechanism very
securely. Use a firm, steady pull to disengage motor
arm from reflector.
(5) Remove levelling motor from headlamp unit.
INSTALLATION
(1) While holding headlamp reflector assembly
still, push levelling motor until control arm is fully
seated into reflector mechanism. An audible “snap”
will be heard.
(2) Push and rotate levelling motor one quarter
turn clockwise to lock motor to the headlamp unit.
(3) Connect headlamp levelling motor electrical
connector.
(4) Install headlamp unit in the vehicle

Do all PTs have headlight load adjuster? I've never heard of it

Not all, export only. I believe it's a Euro deal but England for sure. It's a whole system with a switch on the dash to scroll the headlights up and down. A local guy I know transplanted some into his Cruiser and it was a big project.
