headlight moves

my rh headlight moves up and down. like when i push it with my hand it moves down or up like half an inch. it looks like the adjusting screw is not on the headlight assembly. can it be that the headlight assembly is broken? i searched on how to remove the headlights on a 95 lx but i cant find the thread. can someone tell me or point me toward the thread that says how to remove them.

thanks

I found out

i found out how to take them off. the bottom adjusting screw is out of the housing. the little ball joint cant get back in. i tried hitting it in but i cant. i guess i need new headlights.

I had the same thing happen, my driverside light housing would tilt up an down. My situation ended up being the part that holds the bolt was broken off. I ended up fixing it last month, and am very pleased with the results

how much did you spend in total?

i also need a header panel since mine is broken. i might as well do the conversion.

Yeah it's the stock hood. I have a 97 hood lined up and will get that on sometime this month hopefully. Yeah if you're fixing the header panel and the headlights, the only other thing you will need is the corner lights to do the conversion. I got mine at procarparts.com, they're like $53 shipped. The conversion is easy to do, but you dont need the hood release mechanism unless you want it. I just zip tied the piece to the header panel and it works perfectly. Anyway good luck with all this...

EDIT: Sorry...the total I spend was

$75 for the headlights - private seller
$53 for the corners - procarparts
$90 for the header panel - Ford (with friend's bodyshop dicount)
$218 total, and completely worth it, I would reccomend silverstar headlights as well. Thans for the nice remarks, here's another...
