Default Stripped headlight aimer

I stripped my left/right adjuster. Can I replace just the adjuster or would I need an entire new headlight bracket?

Bandit did a nice little thread about pulling them apart, cleaning and JB'in back together. Probably your best bet.

The Part where you put the Hex or Philips in or you think you striped the Gears?

cuz after rebuilding mine, there is no, NO! way you can strip the gears inside, unless your He-Man, or Supper Man
