Passenger side headlamp too high.

Hey all. I have a 2012 SLK350 and my Comand system started going off and on. I took it to the dealer and they did a software update. Since then, it's worked perfectly but now I have a new problem. Last night was the first time I've driven it at night since then and noticed my passenger side headlamp was way too high. I adjusted it manually as far down as it would go but it's still too high. It was perfect before the update was installed. Could the update have caused this? How can I fix it? Thanks

With xenon lamps you do this on STAR. maybe the adjustment rod has broken inside the lamp.

If you have the xenon package, when you start the car at night / dark environment they lit up. You'll notice the beam moves around before it centers correctly.

If it's not, on either sides, then you could have a fault - must be corrected as television mentioned at the dealer.
