    Headlight and Window Motor??

    My 02 bird has a drivers side headlight that refuses to pop up; however, the light is operable and there is no knocking noise when the headlights is turned on.
    The window rolls up and down but it stops before finishing. The problem is time dependent in the fact that the longer time waiting before attempting to finish rolling up/down the window, the better it rolls.

    Any Suggestions on cheap easy fixes?? College sucks the extra cash right outta the pocket in no time at all.

    Thanks to everyone in advance.

    For the headlight, the cheapest way for a "fix" is to change the gear 180*

    for the window, it could either be the switch, or a new motor is needed, my window does the same thing, and the new motor is ~100 bucks

    HERE's the window motor fix.

    To prevent this problem from happening again, on a budget, always roll windows up and down 1 at a time while the car is running.

    If you want to permenantly fix this, look HERE. Keep in mind you'll still need to replace the motor.
