Ouch. There *may* be adjusters from other models that might fit, e.g. Pulsar. Might have to hit up wreckers.

    You don't have any Japanese cars from the mid 80's to early 90's?

    i would repair the crack with superglue and baking soda or plastic powder, you start by putting some powder in the crack and then applying a little superglue onto the powder, it will be absorbed into the powder, then ann more powder to fill the crack and a bit more superglue, it dries fast and is stronger than just superglue on its own

    google the superglue and baking soda and use that to repair it, trust me it will work good and if it ever cracks in another place just do the same again, you will be amazed at how well it works, i saw a clip of a guy repairing his plastic radiator using it, an another guy who filled a big hole with it and them drilled trough it and then run a tap into it and then put a bolt in it, i dont know if plastic powder would be better or baking soda, but research it a little. At least it will work until you can track down some new adjusters one day

    did you build it up slowly, like pack a little powder in the crack and then just a tiny drop of glue and let it seep in then a bit more powder then a bit more glue, till it builds up then file or sand or cut the access off to shape

    i have done lots of plastic repairs like that but i usually use plastic powder, usually i file a bit of the same type of plastic and use that powder

    hey i was doing some googling and i found something on a 300zx site that talks about some mod that you can hook upto the headlight that you can electronically adjust the headlight from inside the car, and it shows a pic of the same headlight adjuster that you are looking for
