    how i fixed mine

    i just poped the cover off mine and cleaned it out and turned the gear so the ruined threads so the worm gear wouldn;t go through it because the headlight only uses half of the round gear.

    Cool

    yes the thing only uses half of the gear. I have fixed mine and others by using the other half. takes about 15 mins

    That trick doesn't work on all of them. I flipped mine and it just made it grind going up instead of down. I put in the brass gear and all is good.
