Headlight questions

1...the entire mounting plate moves around. The torx screws visible don't move. How do you tighten this down? This is the adjustment for the headlight level? Mine don't quite match.

2...seems my headlight was just plugged in from behind somehow. How do you mount that blue plug to the plate so it plugs the headlight in? That blue plug is just loose in the mounting hole.

Thanks!!!!!!!

The three hex nuts are what tightens the plate to the car. If you take the plate out, you will see that the connector slides into a track on the mounting plate. The connector is then connected to the plate.

None of those hex nuts move. There seems to be some nut under the car bracket but there's no way to reach in there. Back one is loose and rattles.

For the blue plug or connector, it doesn't seem to have any way for the connector to mount to that plastic bracket that holds it for the headlight to plug into.

Thanks.

Thanks! I'll make one if my local P dealer don't carry none! Can't drive it until I fix this. Can't wait for some clip to ship!
