Question about 1988 Chevrolet Corvette
There is a silicone gel in the headlight system that acts as a drive between 2 gears. The fix is very inexpensive but the labor is pretty intense. almost all corvette supply places sell pellets that replace the gel which has more then likely dried out over the years. The only reason I can think of is the gel is used in case the headlight is frozen up or down the gears won't strip. On the headlight assembly you'll see a round area about 2 inches across held on by 3 screws. When you remove the cover you'll seee a gear inside. When you pull the gear out you'll see the area where the gel used to be. There will probably be dried up powder inside. You'll see 3 indentions in the back side of the gear where you place the 3 pellets. Keep one headlight assembled so you can see how to put it back together. I actually bought the pellets from a guy on ebay for less the $10.00. I had to sand the pellets down a little to get them to fit into the gear but it actually worked great
