  • Over tightened?

    I recently completed my build and was so excited. Aimed then without the lenses, and they were close so I tightened them down and sealed them up.

    After installing them they are way off, pointed at the ground and one is off center. The only change was me tightening them down.

    Is it possible I over tightened the nut onto the shaft? Is all hope lost and I'll have to order new projectors? Or can I back them off a little and try to align them again. Thanks in advance.

    Hard to say. You might have damaged the threads on the projector. Or they might have just shifted by themselves. Are they aftermarket or OEM housings? See any issues with the projector itself in the reflector? Might be the reflector mounts.

      I got it fixed. Did have to re-open them. Water was getting in. I was worried o would have to replace the projectors.
