new headlight. terrible cutoff and noise....

just got my jeep back from hitting a deer. the hid cutoff is really bad. and hen i switch between high beams and low beams it makes a banging noise. adjusting the light does nothing. it will be going back to the shop but i wanted anyones imput before. what would cause the cutoff to be so bad? it is all factory parts. the left side of the pic is the new one.

Re: new headlight. terrible cutoff and noise....

The right one is correct (obviously). Definitely go back and tell them to switch it out! SIMPLE!

Re: new headlight. terrible cutoff and noise....

i took the rubber boot off and the bulb wasnt locked in right. fixed it right up. my policy includes 100% dealer parts if you crash in the same year as the car model or or under 15k miles. i was both. the clunking noise is normal but wierd. went to the dealer and checked a new one. if you turn your headlights on with the car off and pull the high beam switch on and off they clunk pretty strange. must be the levelers.
