Question about Pontiac Firebird
Could be the bolt is a little tight on the light...take the rubber cap off next to the headlight and you'll see the twist knob for raising/lowering the headlight assembly manually...if you loosen it up a bit you should have an easier time. Unfortunately the fix is more complicated - you probably need a replacement cog inside the headlight motor. Pontiac will not service that and wants you to replace the motor completely to a tune of $400 and up...if you crack open the motor yourself and find the cog/gear and take it out and find out where to get a new one, you'll save a lot of money.
I haven't done this myself - I just put up with the grinding. At least I know when I locked the car.
