i was going to point you to tb10's project. but seems like you are already aware of that.

viewtopic.php?f=79&t=28175&start=100

there aren't many cars with that design of headlamps, you may have to ultimately mcguyver your own solution, If no one comes to help, i would look into adding some bracket to the system to hold a spring somewhere where it would be under tension when the headlamps are in mid-position but not under tension at both extremes of movement.

no idea if there is room for such modification, but if the geometry allows it, finding a spring with the required tension shouldnt be too problematic

im just spitballing ideas here, affraid i cannot help in any valuable way.
