    Vibrating Headlamp?

    Hey guys, my ‘birds passenger side headlamp assembly has been vibrating when I drive the car down the road. I knew the gear was going, so I thought it was that; now the gear died, and I brought the lamp up manually via that knob, and the headlamp is still vibrating going down the road.

    Would the chewed up gears still do that, even with the lamp manually raised?

    It's not the gear, it's the hinge bushing that pivots the light up.

    Good luck finding a replacement.

    I had to pull one from a salvage yard. I've yet to find a replacement bushing for it.

    Got the delivery on Wednesday (that was fast), stuff looks legit!

    We will see how they work, once I get a good enough day to de&re.
