    Took apart my headlight motors...

    Occasionally.. well a lot in cold weather my headlights didnt want to come up.. and my passengers quit on me the other night ...so I took them apart last weekend and after getting the, apart .. my gears are fine.. but DRY as piss... and rusty... so I clean them up.. rotated them 180 degrees for good luck.and lubed the piss outta them.. then I noticed the weatherproof connector isnt so weatherproof and is coated in green.. so I clean it up.. grease it up... and now they are a lot faster... and a lot quiter...

    Before you buy new gears or a new motor i suggest doing this first...
    just my .02

    he bought the car with over 100k miles, they had probably already been replaced.
