    The gears in the motor are bad. You can replace the whole motor or there are threads on here with links showing how to replace and repair the stripped gear in the motor. Very common with our cars.

    Why is it always drivers side????? i replaced the gear couple of year ago worked fine until som weeks ago. Seems that glue went old and bad, motor was open. Put some new glue on worked until yesterday - now same shit happend....thinking of replace the whole shit with non-pop lights and save some weight.

    Thumbs up Headlight solution

    Go to thisd page. It shows you how to rotate the gear a half turn to get another lifetime out of it, and then you can order a metal gear from this guy so it will last WAY longer.

    The page first tells about the metal gears, but farther down, it describes how to rotate YOUR gear so you can use the other side for another lifetime.

    Talking YES

    He absolutely is still selling them, last I heard. I bought two of them from him maybe a couple months ago and have already installed one, with perfect results so far. Make sure to tighten up the housing tabs like he mentions on that page.
