If so there is a locator bump on the back of the housing that mates to notch in the housing bucket to ensure correct clocking of the light housing.
The Hella are manualy aimed so that the Left (drivers) is pointing slightly to the right (for oncoming traffic) and the Right (passenger) straight on.
Mine were Driver's, pointing down-left, and Passenger's, pointing up right when I purchased my car used.
I've since swapped out to some Lucas Tri-bar replicas.
I installed the Lucas Tribars on #272 also; that's when I found out that the buckets weren't clocked correctly from BDR (one worse than the other).
