does anyone know when the headlights in the advance trim adjust to compensate for additional weight in the back, does the entire internal assembly adjust, or just the low beam projector?

also, when manually leveling the headlights under the hood, does it move the internal assembly, or just the projector?

i know on my wife’s ’10 camry, the headlamp unit is fixed, but the internal fixture holding the low beam projector and high beam reflector moves when adjusting elevation. the internal shroud is fixed to the lens so it doesn’t move. wondering if the mdx headlight is the same.

both lights move at the same time.. adjusting manually will move the entire assembly + leveling motor.

the lights adjust itself using 4 leveling units in the suspension arms.. it will know when an axle is unleveled and will adjust automatically, it will also adjust when going uphill or downhill using the same leveling units to read the pitch of the car.

gotcha. it recalibrates at startup and every 3 minutes, right? read somewhere that it’s on a 3-min interval.
