I went through this myself a couple weeks ago when replacing a simple headlight snowballed into a major fiasco. There were several (I think three?) older threads here on just this, two I believe were pretty good. Anyway, out of the 914 Tech Tips 700 book, "[t]he headlamp steel housing cover can be made to better fit the hood/fender/eyebrow by adjusting the outboard two hole pivot pin and the inboard three hole pivot pin. This adjusts the assembly cover's height and squareness."

The happy news is that it is easy, ten minutes tops. One word to the wise, keep the plastic cover on the linkage off and pull the relay since you will, at some point rotate the linkage (on purpose or not) and the motor will take off unexpectedly even with the ignition off. It is fast, it is strong and the housing is sharp! Just pop the relay in as you try out the fit and remember to remove it if you go back.

Now who wants to figure out why I don't have brights...
