1996 Pontiac Firebird Q&A

1996 Pontiac Firebird Question: headlight actuators

does anyone else have their headlight actuator motors keep running after the headlights close down for about 7 seconds ? -
Answer 1
This is not an uncommon problem for a 1996 Pontiac Firebird. In most cases the head light actuator will need to be replaced on the affected side. Don't be surprised if the other side fails soon. -
Answer 2
The worm gear (unreliable plastic garbage) has stripped inside the motor assembly. Will cost you over 150 for a new one: dont buy a used one from ajunkyard. They fail unexpectedlty without warning due to poor engineering. Ive replaced 2 already in mine.Use the control under the boot to manually adjust til you fix it. -
Answer 3
My right headlight does the same thing. -
