Loose headlight cover
As I was driving home last night it looked like my right headlight was moving or (flapping in the wind) so I pulled over and it is loose or looks like a screw came out or something like that. Is it an easy fix? The cover still goes up and down but it is loose at the bottom. Did the housing break or something. I have not had time to look at it... Dealing with problem #156 of the week, I got water in my finished basement.............Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Also previously on my way to work My airbag light came on and stayed on for a while. When I came out from work and started her up no airbag light. Easy fix? It came on a while back but have not had any issues with it in quite a while.

I've got a Chilton's manual somewhere in my garage. If you don't get any answers, I'll try to look this up for you in the next day or so.

Probably one of the screws cam out easy fix. There are two on the back, open the hood and look down and slightly behind the head light, they will be right there, remove the trim cover on the front to see the rest.

The right side bracket that holds the lid is a notorious problem with Firebirds. I breaks for no apparent reason. I've had two Firebirds with the same issue and never hit anything etc.
If it pops over the bracket, it will catch on the hood and only go up about so far. Scratches the hell out of the hood in the process.
