Headlight adjuster not working

I tried to adjust the headlight but it doesn't move. Is it an electric adjuster or mechanical? Any ideas what I can do to get it working?
Thanks

Re: Headlight adjuster not working

It's mechanical, but unless you are watching carefully you might not see it move as the adjustment only moved th light in small increments.

It is mechanical. It is possible something has come apart or is stuck. I haven't had mine apart yet so I am going to be little help on this other than it being a mechanical screw link. Clockwise is down and counter clockwise is up. There are a lot of turns and it stops at the end of movement.
