E90 ADH Repair shop

Hello all,

I am in need of assistance on my OEM 2011 E90 BMW 335xi adaptive headlights. It seems like on my driver side headlight that a bump has placed it slightly out of adjustment (cutoff slightly rotated). I am to nervous to play with the adjustment arms and was wondering if this is something a shop could tackle. I have no headlight warnings, but the cutoff is slightly askew. The stepper motors do function still and I have no warning. It is the driver headlight so hopefully you would be able to get at it removing the wheel liner.

Anyone recommend a shop that may be able to do this?

Cheers

Check and see if you can align it with the screws under the hood. Does it align/move when the lights turn on??

However, it's likely the ball joint inside the light has popped out. This happened on my e90. Generally can't fix without taking headlight apart/unsealing. I ended up replacing the light myself with a used one. It's not hard, but you do have to remove the bumper cover and peel back the wheel liner a little.
