    I have the same issue with my T/A. From what I have researched, the gears in the headlight motor have gone bad. You can replace the gear with a metal one. There is a website where you can buy the kit for both headlights for about $80. Do a search. I don't remember what the name of the website was.

    You can take the headlight lose and spin the gear around 180 degrees for a quick fix,then you need to order the metal gear with the brace.
