Question Help!!!W210, alignment of the hi-beam lights

Hi, I have a W210, E430-2000.
How do i adjust the alignment of the
hi-beam lights only? My problem is that the low-beam lights are properly
aligned, but the Hi-beams point up in the air and to the left. With the
black knobs on the top of the lighthouse I am only able to realign both
Hi and Low-beam together. I have not been able to find any information
about this on the internet or not even in WIZ.

I'd speculate that somthing in your light units is broken.

It's simply the design that alignment of the high beams follows alignment of the low beams and it's fixed.

Thanks for your answer Chris! That was helpful, since i dont know how the headlights are constructed. I agree with you, that something must be broken. One thing that is odd is that both hi-beams are misaligned. However, It could be that the previous owner havent been careful when replacing the bulbs.
My best regards to you Kent, and happy driving!
