need you guys help

i have a problem to aim my low beams...

the spinning things, i don't know how it is called tho, by the way those things are broken. even though i try to spin those it is not working and spin with no traction... i think those plastic get damaged cuz i spin it too hard..

should i bring my car to garage or body shop for fixing it or any solution i can do with some specific tool?

please help this issue...

they are plastic gears, so they might be stripped, which means the only opt. is to replace.
was there ever front end damage?

Throw them in the garbage. Depo adjusters are notorious for stripping out.
