headlight does not auto level, one lazy eye ( or shroud has popped out )

e90 lci 335 sedan

just purchased a car two days ago from a board member here. he was helping his "friend" sell it. long story short. ive been running into tons of problems only after owning the car for TWO days.

ive been searching all day reading about the issues people have with their headlights


problem i found today is the headlights ( both ) do not auto level. they just turn on and stay in the middle. on top of that, the passenger headlight xenon shroud seems to have "popped" out and now is facing downwards. they do however still move left and right.

is there anyway to "pop" or the xenon shroud back without opening the headlight?

ive read about the socket that needs to be popped back in, or the bracket arm attached to the control arm. but in my case my headlights dont even auto level to begin with ( both of them )

any help is greatly appreciated. thanks

i should also say, i do not have any light errors, and that the driver side was replaced last year by bmw for being faulty. could it of been it was never coded? or they wouldnt work period because of the coding?
