Any way to center AHL headlights?

Hi, I am in the process of retrofitting adaptive lci xenons. I already have everything I need to get them installed, but I was wondering if there is an easy way to center the headlights so I can install them while I get the adaptive feature working. The passenger side is centered, but the drivers side is pointing to the left. I was thinking I can just connect a battery to the motor that moves the projector, but I am not sure and I don't want to damage them.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

There is a post in the DIY section about this. There is a small adjuster towards the outside of the headlight that will manually adjust the left/right setting of the light.

Thanks I appreciate the info. I will search for it. Do you know if they will still be centered when I get the adaptive feature working? Or will I have to readjust them again afterwards.

I found the post you were talking about. I had to max out the horizontal adjustment and it is still a little off, but close enough. I'm going to install them today or tomorrow and I'll post some pics.

If anyone knows of a way to get a little more adjustment on them I'd appreciate the info.

Do you have the ahl module or just retrofitting the lights into a non ahl car?
I had my lights replaced due to accident and one light was fine but one pointed to the right. Just had to do a frm reset and the light centred itself.

Yes I have the AHL modules and I already retrofitted the frm3. I just need the wiring and coding to make it work. I wanted to install them first while I work on that. I'll post a picture later today.
