quick fix headlight adjustment stripped?

My jeep was lifted, the dealer never took the time to adjust my headlights. We know how bad these are the way they are anyway, barely see anything.

The bottom of the light moves in and out very easy, To fix complete its a new complete assembly. I wanted to know is anyone ran into this and what they may have done.

You can see the plastic fits into the adjuster this is it will either go in front or behind it, not on it. I could really use some help.

the plastic piece. I was told I need an entire assembly just to fix it. I just thought maybe I could find a short cut

There's quite a bit of plastic on a JK...do you mean one of the guides?? If so, I may have a fix...

Can you post a pic for me? I don't want to give you bad advice....if it is what I think is broke, you should be able to drill out the old guide and bring a small stainless machine screw in from the back of the can and nut it on the inside....leaving the rest sticking out towards the front, a pic would really help...
