I tried the 180 flip after all of these years and now it grinds when it opens instead of when it closes... Guess it's time for a new gear or to decide which way sounds worse! LOL

Mine just started the grinding when trying to close. (Passenger). I also noticed that now when I try to turn on the parking lights only, the headlights flip up but don't turn on until you turn the switch on over for headlights. I tried to rotate the gear 180 degrees. That allowed the lid to close now and since it closes without a problem, if I flip to just parking lights only the parking lights come on, the headlights stay closed. BUT, now if I turn on main headlights, it won't open fully and just grinds. So I have traded not closing without grinding; to not opening without grinding. But, I can now drive with just parking lights and fogs. New brass gears on order from Rodney Dickman. I went ahead and bought both sides as the other will probably go soon. 😀
