    It is a connector that disconnects the timing from computer control.

I have a 2010 VW 2.0tdi passat and one of the headlight adjusting motor are making noise, like it is running the hole time and cannot adjust correctly...So can it be fix or must it be replays ed?

If you are mechanically inclined, recommend that you remove a few components to have visual access to the bad motor of your head light assembly.
Check to see if there is something blocking/obstructing it's operation. If not, then disconnect the harness and re-connect. If may correct the problem. If not, might have a bad motor.

When you put timing on 4 degrees as the label on the motor says it does not run power. What should the correct timing be for a 92 GMC 6.0 liter motor

The correct timing would be what the sticker says. However, if there is considerable mileage on the timing chain then your timing would be off even when set with a timing light because the chain will stretch with usage. The more miles on the engine, the more stretch in the chain. To myknowledge there is no formula to determine how much extra advance to use to compensate for that stretch. Advance your timing a couple of degrees at a time until you can find a satisfactory amount of power and still have the engine start easily. If it starts to turn over hard,especially when hot you have gone too far, back your timing off a little. Or you could replace the timing chain and gears as a set. Hopethis helps.

Check Relay connection pins,check for dirty fuse, connect a direct power supply from a 2 nd battery, to the correct Pos/Neg. wiper motor terminals. If the Motor is good, it will energise immediately, if not, you got your answer.

Best of Luck.

Timing Venture wipers

disconnect the wiper transmission from the motor, then run the motor and turn the motor off with the wiper switch, this will park the motor, re-attach the wiper trans linkage so the wipers are parked/down
