My 1999 turkey... I mean Catera... didn't pass state inspection because the headlamp adjustors are both busted and the headlamp assemblies are jiggling around like cafeteria jello. The mechanic told me I need two complete headlamp assemblies. Another option is finding the individual adjustors and he thinks that is highly unlikely (however, I have yet to call the local Cadillac dealer to see if the adjustors are available anywhere). I have 15 days to drive around with the rejection sticker before it's illegal for me to drive the car, so I need to get the issue fixed and the car re-inspected before then.
Does anyone know of somewhere that sells the entire assembly? I really don't have the money right now to order through a dealer and pay through the nose for the install. Thank God my father-in-law has been "mechanicing" for 40 years and could do the job in 30 minutes with the parts.
Personally, I'd prefer to push this car into a swamp and light it on fire for all the issues it has. I bought it for $3k as an additional four-door to accomodate having our first child, and it appears I'm getting my money's worth.
Thanks so much for any help.
