Hilarious. Same thing that happened to me when I switched to a HID system. I, however, took apart the projector to replace the lens' and paint the shroud, all that jazz.

The passenger side adjusted fine but the driver side not at all. When the lights are turned on the cutoff on the driver side is way off into left field and looks like a bump because (I believe) the light is shining through the little holes in the projector surround haha.

While I was adjusting the driver side, in the pitch black of night, with the headlights and bumper already re-installed I kept turning the side-to-side screw until *thunk*. Fuck. The projector fell off the screw. Which is entirely possible because there is nothing that stops the projector.

So once I get some better light, by that I mean dusk when I can see the cutoff and still be able to adjust the screws I'll try it again. It's holding on to about 3-4 threads at the moment haha.
