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.

they didnt use a factory headlight, looks like they bought a replica headlight from am autoparts. definately take it back, that cutoff is horrible!

also have them replace both bulbs, so the color matches. color will change over time for hids

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

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.
