common fix for self leveling headlights pointing down

Hi all, This is pretty simple and is not necessarily the problem causing all headlight leveling issues but from what I read it seems the most common. Most people just typed out the fix but I figured I might as well throw a picture up so that it would easier for someone just starting out with this problem.

Basically what happens is there is a connecting bar from your control arm to a leveling sensor that can break easily. This is on the passenger side of the vehicle. So the easiest way to see and get to it is by turning the wheel all the way to the right.

In the picture below I used zip ties to reconnect the piece back to the control arm.
