Question about 1988 Pontiac Firebird
My son's 1988 Trans Am's left headlight will not raise/open. I've heard you can somehow raise the headlight yourself into the permanent up position. How do I do that???
That is correct , head light doors may be opened manually , repair
manual states turn on headlights , and rotate headlight door motor KNOB
clockwise until a click is heard . you will see door come up as you rotate the knob . you will find the knob under the hood near the headlight assemby

I drive a 88 firebird as well and i have the same problem on both lights. what you do is turn the head lights on and you will see a bracket made of metal connected to the head light body. you take a screw driver a force up on it and wa-la it is locked in the up posistion.
