Question

Hey guys...and girls!

Any suggestions on other places to track down a Headlight Motor?

Craigs List

eBay

Call your local wrecking yards

Online Catalog suppliers:

YearOne

The Paddock

National Parts Depot

Classic Industries

Hawk's 3rd/4th Gen parts

JC Whitney?

Parts Place Inc ?

Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, NAPA, Car Quest, O'Reillys?

Used parts:

Dessert Valley Auto Parts (DVAP) in Arizona

Memory Lane in California

Have you considered taking the motor out and having it repaired at a local electric motor repair shop? I did that with my pool filter motor (different animal - I know), it needed the bushing replaced and cleaning. Cost me $100 to repair and $250-300 to replace.

I've heard people say it could be "the gear"? Which means it has power, just the internal gear needs replacing, I can get the part for $20. Apparently it happens on the Vette's motor alot too?

And thanks for the suggestions!

The Fiero headlight motors of course have issues too. I bought a headlight rebuild kit from Rodney Dickman for my Fiero.

Maybe this link will help you: http://rodneydickman.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=47
