    I have just fitted some Depo black edition angel eye headlights to my E39 540i 1996 model and I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can answer:

    Can the headlight height adjuster (controlled by wheel on dash) be removed from the standard old style non angel eye halogen headlights and if so how?

    How do I adjust the alignment of the lights up-down-left-right etc?

    Many thanks.

    Craig.

    To adjust the up down left right there are a couple of plastic Allen bolts on each unit. You can see them both looking at the unit from above. Turn these screws to adjust.
    Regarding the motors, I stuck the originals in, but they don't fit well. I had to cut a rubber washer that is on the unit to make them fit iirc.


    Edit: mine is e36.. but I'll leave the post as the basic design will probably be similar..

    Yeah, I know about the adjusters now, thanks. I just didn't know where the 5 series motors were on the original lights or if they even fitted to the new ones?
