had my mot today failed on headlights, basically i've got some e marked rhd smoked headlights but the adjuster wont stay in socket otherwise they'd be fine so swapped over to original headlights for mot and now these wont adjust what so ever, i've pushed the adjuster into socket as far and as tight as they'll go but still luck, can any one shed any light what i'm doing wrong? even dismantled smoked 1's to get the adjuster to stay in

OK with the smoked ones you need a clip-in adjuster piece to get them to work with motors. Are you running electic adjusters or just the fixed adjusters? Basically to see whether the adjusters are clipped in you need to grab the H4 bulb whilst its clipped into the light. If you can wiggle it about with the internal mirror then it aint clipped, if its tight then they are clipped in...

think there elctric cos you can adjust them in the car under light switch.
i've took the glass off the front of lights so i can actually push the mirrored bit inside the light onto the adjuster but as soon as you adjust them they pop off

As soon as you adjust them with the switch inside the car or the white knob on the electric adjuster? You have to set the adjuster inside the car to zero and then loosen off the white knob they can only go so much and then they will break or pop out if youve wound them too tight.

make sure the motor can physically turn , i accidently tightened one of the knobs too much and then it wouldnt adjust,

slacken it off a bit and see if that helps
