Report: Head light door actuators may fail and cause head lights to stick
Pontiac Firebird Problem
Average Mileage: 101,125 mi (20,000 mi - 200,000 mi)
The head light door actuators may fail causing the head lights to become stuck in the raised or lowered position.
I have had to replace both sides 3 times as the actuator motor gears are made of plastic and not metal. Each side cost a total of $300 and $85 an hour labor X 3 hours.
