    The plastic gear is stripped. Go and find the brass gear replacements. Id on't know if any of our sponsors sell it so go to classicindustries.com

    There are a couple different kits available on Ebay, and you might be able to save a few bucks.

    this is a little off topic for it but is there a kit out there to take out the flip up headlights and do flush headlights similar in appearance to the C6 vette lights?

    That'll make the car look more like a Sunfire then a C6. Especially if it has a non-ram air hood.
    But yeah, there is a kit. I think it's around $1000? The same place makes them for C5's as well.

    Make sure you buy that kit that comes with a brace. If you don't, you're throwing your money away. The glue won't hold the plastic housing together very long and they will separate. Once this happens, the lights might not open at all. I fully expect my next T/A to need both new headlights motors and window motors. Luckily, I'm experienced at replacing them. Both are relatively simple fixes.
