Replacing Headlight Clio Mk 2 - Advice?

Hi, I have a 2002 1.2 Clio Authentique. I posted on here a few months back about how to replace a headlight unit, but I have only just got round to doing it. I just went on ebay to buy a new unit, and it said you don't get a new headlight motor. Is it ok and easy enough to use the existing ones. The only reason i'm replacing it is because of oxidation that I can't get rid of so all the electrics etc work fine.

Also once I put the new one in can i use them straight away or do I need to get them aligned at a garage?

Probably silly questions really, but just wanted to be sure before I buy a new one.

Re: Replacing Headlight Clio Mk 2 - Advice?

To check the pre/post alignment, you could park the car a few feet away from a wall and mark the beam pattern's 'hot spot' on the wall in chalk, adjusting the new lamp to match if necessary.

Bright sunlight might be a hinderance at the moment.

Or back it into a garage and mark the beam on the back of the door.
