    Manual Headlight Adjuster

    It appears the nylon gear in my headlight motor is stripped. I removed the rubber cap from the manual adjuster and turned the plastic cap but had no results(the headlight did not come up). Any suggestions? I am attempting to rotate the shaft on the motor 180 to access the unstripped side of the gear.

    I have done that before, you need to crank it a lot to get it to move. If it
    doesn't move after a bit, try going the other direction. I use my thumb, but
    I think you can also use a 10mm socket.
