My headlamps are showing some age; I cannot get the drivers side to align. I turn the screw, and the lamp does not adjust. My best guess, the screw is stripped.

Any chance of repairing this / getting around it ? Or, am I looking at a new lamp?
Also, Whats up with only being able to adjust up and down, and not side to side? My old car could do that. (Bonneville).

Dont have any advice on the up/down adjustment.

To adjust left and right, you have to loosen the fiberglass grille support at the radiator support and move it in/out, it will adjust the inner end of the headlight and move the beam left/right a little.
