    Headlight issue

    My driver`s side headlight motor opens up fine but when I turn off the headlight it closes but makes a loud noise almost like it`s still trying to close?

    That would be your headlight motor starting to go. Its one of those un-avoidable things. It happened to all my trans ams

    haha i've asked this question before. The plastic gears in your headlight motor have gone bad. Your best bet would be to order brass gears and not encounter this problem again.

    A new motor at Auto Zone is $70, lifetime guarantee. The brass gear alone is $48. Just installed the Auto Zone motor.

    MY passenger side headlight does this fluttering thing when I drive since I bought the car last year that drives me nuts, any suggestions? It's not too much just enough that it draws my attention to it.

    Google Rodney Dickman. He has the best kit. Go to the bottom of his pages and there's a link for T/A's.

    No problem bro. I didn't know that was a no-no, nor did I know that Rodney wasn't onboard! Won't happen again! Thanks for being cordial in the process.
