Headlight adjuster 101 1982 300SD W126
 
I'm guessing I'm not using the Search field properly because I can't find a thing on how to adjust headlights on an 82 300SD W126 body. I see the adjusters but am not sure what they do or if they are working properly. I notice the bottom of both headlights ( sealed beams) move fore and aft about 1/2 inch freely. This can not be right.

I've owned the car since day 1 and after some 34 years decided to replace,the original sealed beams. I installed both headlights but am certain that the aim on both has been wrong for some time. Can anyone point me to a primer on what adjustments do what and where they are located? I also tried google but found no youtubes on an 82 300SD headlight adjust. Thanks to anyone that can lend a hand. Kosmo007:laugh::laugh:
