    Sounds that way. It acts like something is bound up from the sounds of things, but a slow/dead/dying motor would act that same way. I don't really know for sure whether your motor is bad or not, but maybe take the headlight assy. apart, remove the 10mm nut from the motor shaft, pry the actuating arm off, and move the assembly up and down, making sure that the whole thing isn't bound up.
