I could not adjust my headlight anymore, so I had a look at the ball joint.
And yes..  it was disconnected. Took me some time to get it in...
Some pics, last one ball joint connected again:

Just a note, my handbook says to raise the beam vertical you screw the adjuster clockwise,
If fact it's a misprint you screw it anticlockwise, outwards to raise the beam.

Just for record.

I've got the same issue.
After studying the mechanics there, I can't image that this dealer solution can work:
====================
i asked my triumph-dealer ans he said, that this a well known problem and there exists a official repair-instruction (also with video):
remove the screw with the lever, remove the lever from the screw, turn the screw back into the housing and strike with a (plastic)hammer on the screw.
the ball inside the housing shold spring back into the bearing. then install the lever again and the vertical adjustement works as it shold.
====================

But I found a working one. You need to use a zip tie and a screwdriver, see pictures:
(Good to have a curved Kelly forceps also to roven the zip tie)
