My headlight adjuster on the left side used to offer resistance and I assume it was functioning correctly, but the other day, I attempted to adjust the headlight and the left knob offered absoutely no resistance. What's the common failure there?

My first guess is the retainer securing the cable
that connects the knob to the headlight came
undone allowing the cable to detach.
Remove the panel to check and gain access
and reattach if necessary.

Isn't constructed like that on the Gen3, no cable.

Follow the instructions to remove the front dash panel. Check to see if the metal rod is seated on both ends. It's like a universal joint on both ends. There's a nut on the underside of the top plastic piece, see if it's come loose. See if the top plastic piece is broken and spinning.
