Default Headlight vertical aim control failure

Hi all,

Yesterday I got an error on my F10 (look attachment). Also I noticed condensation in the left headlight, but there is no rain so I don't get it... What could be the problem?

"Dazzling may occur" lol

Have you looked under the hood at the back of the headlight for the adjustment, see if all looks in working order?
Have you pulled the error code and searched for cause/fix online?
if there's condensation in the interior of the housing, I'd bet the seal on the headlight failed , the access panel (i.e. to change bulbs) fell off, or road debris cracked it. I can imagine that a lot of condensation could cause problems with any electric motors in/behind the light.
