2008 JGC SRT8 Projector HID passenger side faces down and doesn't move

2008 JGC SRT8 Projector HID passenger side faces down and doesn't move, however the bulb works. When I start the vehicle the drivers side Projector HID adjusts. The passenger side does not move. Is this a likely ballast issue?

Thanks.

It could be the self-leveling motor failed, or the housing itself broke where the projector is attached to it (seen it happen, housing is actually somewhat brittle).

Ballast just fires the bulb, as far as I know.

Thanks. Sounds like I'll need a whole new headlamp if the housing is broken. Is the leveling motor serviceable/replaceable?

The leveling motor is replaceable. Now, if you can purchase that piece by itself I don't really know. I just know I have removed them and installed them on headlights I've built.
