    yes, there are little 'bump-stop' screws that you can adjust, just look around for them

    Right along the edge of the headlight cover, flip up your lights and you should see them right away

    did you screw with the lights or did it just do that on its own? Cause i just screwed with my passanger one because it was making that terrible grind noise for 5 seconds when it came down, fixed the issue by turning the gear 180, than discovered that night that the light wouldn't pop up cause the hood was caught in it felt terrible

    Ok, I cant find this adjustment. After watching from outside the car, the headlight does go down all the way, but it pops up just a little bit after it goes down. Could it be the gear needs adjusting?

    just make sure you dont over adjust as they will rub the paint off from closing & opening.you may have to sacrifice a little with a small gap.

    your looking at the adjust screws with the white colored head bolt..
    those are the bolts to shift and adjust your lamp.
