same here...it was a b***h to get that leveling arm apart from the headlight housing..now my lights "jitter" when they go through the initial level upon startup and something seems to have gotten stuck

it's a pretty straightforward diy and relatively easy. I followed this DIY http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...79#post8554679

I also cleaned the projector lens while I had everything apart which was extremely dirty

the projector bowl was kinda cloudy too
