Noise from one headlight

Hi, currently my lexus is200 is making a constant turning noise from a box on the back of the headlight cluster .the box has a screw which i belive is for manaul adjustment of the beam levels. How do i stop this noise or what is wrong as the other headlight is silent. The lights all work but this noise is annoying me . Thanks in advance.

Is the noise coming from the headlight adjusting motor? That's really the only thing I can imagine making any kind of noise like you describe.

I imagine that it's possibly not positioned right inside the housing. I'd probably remove it and place it back in to see if it likes itself back where it should be. Otherwise I could be bad but that's pretty uncommon. I think your only chance at getting another one would be at a salvage yard or a part out.
