euro headlight dip beam


i have a 1973 350sl uk spec i am currently re registering it in france. i bought the right headlight lenses but the merc garage tells me they aren't throwing the right pattern through the testing equipment. instead of raising gradually to the right they are horizontal with a concentrated beam in the center. on the road it seems fine and lights up the right side and no flashes from on coming traffic.

do you just replace the lens ?
or do you have to replace the whole unit?
if unit must be replaced can i fit the 1976 and after model?

i can buy said unit new for 360€

any info would be fantastic.
kind regards

The RHD/LHD assemblies have different part #s, so I imagine you have to replace the units.
