    Has anyone removed the headlight levelling motor?

    If so how easy is it to do?

    I want to take them out of the original lights and put them in some new angel eye ones.

    I can't see where they come out.

    It looks like you have to take the whole unit to pieces and undo 2 screws.

    A bit like this:
