Default Remote headlight adjustment

I am not sure if my electric headlight adjustment wheel on the dash is working.
If I turn on the lights facing the garage wall with all 4 lights on (with ignition key in no.2 position) and move the adjustment wheel to the no.1 or no.2 position I can hear a motor going but no movement in light beams. Which lights should move, the two outer, the two inner or all four. Would appreciate your comments.

North American Ti's didn't get the cool electronicaly adjustable headlights. We got the cheap plastic dealies that you have to adjust manually. I think someone on here did a retrofit though. John Firestone and Clex2 both have some cool gadgets incorporated, but neither one of them are very active on the forums these days.

Thanks for the info, Jess.

That's pretty cool. Too bad there isn't as huge of an import business for the euro stuff as there is for the JDM honda crowd type of thing.

Can someone post the correct procedure for aiming the headlights in a car with the remote headlight aiming? What position do you put the wheel?
