1. A headlamp assembly for a vehicle, the headlamp assembly comprising:
a carrier;
a first light module rotatably attached to the carrier and rotatable relative to the carrier about a first horizontal axis;
a second light module rotatably attached to the carrier and rotatable relative to the carrier about a second horizontal axis;
wherein the first horizontal axis and the second horizontal axis are parallel with each other;
a main actuator bar interconnecting the first light module and the second light module; and
an adjustment drive coupled to the main actuator bar and operable to move the main actuator bar along a bar axis to simultaneously rotate the first light module about the first horizontal axis and the second light module about the second horizontal axis;
wherein the carrier includes a plurality of posts, and the main actuator bar includes a plurality of slots extending substantially along the bar axis, with one of the plurality of posts slideably disposed within one of the plurality of slots to slideably support the main actuator bar relative to the carrier and allow movement of the main actuator bar relative to the carrier generally along the bar axis.
