Headlight adjuster by raistlin

The driver's side vertical headlight adjuster on VeeKay seems to have taken flight. I mean the white hex and blue thingy just aren't there.
Does anybody know if there is a way of adjusting the headlight without please? Or can the parts be re-fitted?

Thanks

Just found this Paul after a search on the tinternet, may help.

Not sure if you can get the cogs separately, but when the adjuster worked loose on mine I did a 'quick fix' using the inside of a cable terminal block like this...

You just need the inside of one connector, then cut it in half so you have a short hollow block with a single screw in it. Slip it over the end of the adjuster rod and then use a pair of pliers to pull the adjuster rod out of the back of the lamp until it's at the correct height (line the beam up against a wall and compare it with the other side). Once it's in the correct position tighted the screw so that the rod is held in place.

It's just about do-able single handed, but easier if you can get someone else to tighten up the screw while you keep the light in position.

On my Zt it seems the shaft went rusty and the white cog came loose and fell off ,but i got another pair from a breakers.

Cleaned up the shaft but the cog was a still a bit loose.. I found a Small red fibre washer that was a tight push fit on the shaft,
it actually held tight enough to hold the light in the right position , and then also it stopped the ingress of the epoxy I used to stick the cog back on,
would not be good for the glue to get down the shaft and jam it up .. .

Been on for 2 years now with no problems .
