Good day. Is there's any way to aim my 626's headlights? The manual I found online doesn't apply to me since it seems to have a different headlight assembly. (For instance: It keeps mentioning a level bubble supposedly built into the assembly, which mine clearly doesn't have. The turn signal also comes attached with the headlight in the said manual, while mine has it as a separate unit altogether.)

My research has told me it’s a European 626 model. Haven’t found anything about aiming though.

For reference, here's what my 626's headlight assembly looks like:

So I managed to squeeze a bit of time to poke around and explore last night. I found the answer to my own question and I thought I should put it out here for anyone who may need it.

These four bolts/screws are the ones used for aiming this type of headlight. They move the beams around depending on which way you turn the bolt.

Blue: Moves the high beam left or right

Green: High beam, up or down

Red: Low beam, left or right

Yellow: Low beam, up or down

It's worth noting that these mechanisms may be fragile due to their age, so be careful! It won't take a lot of turning to move the beams a significant degree anyway, so be patient and turn the bolts with a bit of care.

You'll know you broke it when you hear a snap with the bolt suddenly feeling loose and the beam no stays put despite the infinite number of spins. Found this out the hard way. I'll see if there's a way around this, or if I'm left with no choice but to source a new assembly when I find some spare time again. Sigh.
