Recall 20V-516 Headlamp Adjustment plugs

Just got a recall notice in the mail. The headlamp adjustment plug which covers the horizontal adjustment mechanism may have been swapped with the vertical adjustment plug resulting in a non compliant headlamp adjustment. Potentially blinding another driver.

They say it will take less than an hour

Got the same the other day. There is already a thread with more info.

The question I would have: if I see the lights adjust up/down when starting the car, can't I assume all is well?

No need to have the dealer perform this service. Simply follow the guide for swapping the existing plugs into their proper locations.

Went to the dealer. Preferred for BMW to have a record that the recall was done.

Anyway, took all but 15 minutes. They determined that nothing needed to be swapped on mine after visual inspection. Took me longer walking through the showroom looking at the M8 Grand Coupe Competition!
