I wrote a guide on the Corvette Forum for replacing the headlight gear, which involves taking the headlight motor apart and putting it back together:

Left headlight wont go up


check the rods and power to the light motor . The little bushes on the arms wear out and the arms can lock or fall off and jam the motor crank.

1985 corvette headlight close but wont open


I did mine about 3 year ago, C4 headlights are electric motor driven. Clean the contacts, if they are clean, you will have to replace the gears, it's really not hard, just be sure to clean everything as you re- assemble the motor drive. I used synthetic grease. The drive can be unscrewed from the housing and then changing the gears is easy. Most gear sets have directions with them. I got mine from Corvette Central. (about 50 for the set, replace both gears) Be sure to remove any debris.

I have 1990 vette have rebuilt headlight motors and a new headlight module , but headlights still go up and stay up in sunlight


Not a Corvette expert, but I don't think sunlight would have any effect.
The motors should close the doors when you turn the lights off regardless if it is dark or not.
Are the headlights staying on, or just the doors staying up ? The up position is the default when something is wrong, so I think it takes voltage to close them.

Corvette Headlight Motor Problem


Corvettes have a gear box on that motor. It has plastic gears in it. You probably have a gear stripped in that gear box, that lets the motor spin free. You can get repair parts to repair it, or replace the whole motor and gear box. Its an easy fix if your handy. Read all the instructions before you start.

1988 chevy corvette headlight repair


attach a string around the copper wire attached to the brush, place the brush back in the slot and pull both ends of the string out the side of the motor and tape securely, do the same with the other side. Work quickly before the tape lets go of the string.
