Question about 1985 Pontiac Fiero
My 1985 Fierro RH headlight does not flip up. The lamp is on The LH flips up but not the right side do I need a new motor what is the best quick fix?
It could possibly be the relay that's located on the headlight assembly. Good replacements can be found in almost any junkyard Fiero. First, check to be sure the single blue wire is connected. It's on the inboard side of the headlight, and the connection looks like an inline fuse holder. Then turn the headlights on. Using a ballpoint pen so as not to injure your fingers, insert it into one of the holes in the knob atop the motor and turn it clockwise. This should start to raise the headlight. If it doesn't activate and raise upon its own, then it's the relay. If the motor just sits and spins when you turn it on, then it's the gear inside. You can obtain a rebuild kit from www.rodneydickman.com

2. ADJUST HEADLIGHT AIM ONLY
(a) Place the vehicle in the following conditions.
The area around the headlight is not deformed.
The vehicle is parked on a level surface.
Tire inflation pressure is the specified value.
A driver is in the driver's seat and the vehicle is in a state ready for driving (with a tank full).
The vehicle has been bounced several times.
(b) Check the headlight aiming.
(1) Prepare a thick white paper.
(2) Stand the paper perpendicular to the ground at the position 3 m (9.84 ft) away from the headlights
(3) Ensure that the center line of the vehicle and the paper face forms a 90-degree angle as shown
in the illustration.
(4) Draw a horizontal line (H line) on the paper, showing where the headlights should strike.
(5) Draw a vertical line (V line) at the position where the extended center line of the vehicle strikes.
(6) Draw 2 vertical lines (by connecting the low and high beam center marks) to where the both headlights
should strike (V RH and V LH lines).
(7) Draw a horizontal line (by connecting the both low beam center marks) at the position where the
headlights should strike (H RH and H LH lines).
The H RH and H LH line is 0.4° below the horizontal line (H line) of the light axis.
(8) Start the engine.
(9) Turn the headlights ON.
(10) Check that the headlights properly strike the position shown in the illustration.
