Horizontal Headlight Adjustment

So I just replaced both HID headlight bulbs on my wife's 2009 Enclave. Everything is working fine but once replaced they were both point down and towards the passengers side. I found the vertical adjustment under the hood but cant figure out the horizontal adjustment and have found very little on the issue online. I can get up under the wheel well, take the back cover off the light bulb assembly and physically move it to where they need to be, but as soon as I crank it back up they automatically move back to the right. Any ideas?

Re: Horizontal Headlight Adjustment

are these the headlights that turn left/right- depending on where the steering wheel is pointed?

Re: Horizontal Headlight Adjustment

I wonder if there is a 'reset' procedure-- to get to the 'home' position

Re: Horizontal Headlight Adjustment

Dealer was no help. Basically wanted to charge me $104 to look and see if they can figure out how to adjust. If it's got the be "figured out" I can do that at the house for free. I'll keep it updated if I come up with anything.

Have not have had any luck finding a 2013-15 Factory Service Manual for download. Sorry. Will keep looking, though.
