That is a common fault (there's also one on the rear suspension, obviously) but the arm being knocked off will not stop the headlights from cycling up and down at switch on. Halogen cars do this too to exercise the motors.

There is a fuse for the headlamp motors: if they're not moving at all that would be the first thing to check.
