The assembly has been known to jam.
Try this before you replace any parts:
If the operation mechanism is operated by an electric motor (as opposed to a vacuum operated mechanism) and has a rubber cap over the motor, remove the cap and turn the motor by hand and watch the door open. If it hangs up, check the hinges and levers to see if anything looks broken or worn.

Headlights stay on, ignition turned off


If you turn car off and remove key from ignition, th? headlights will stay on until you open the driver side door, its part of an auto on headlight system. you can leave your selector light switch on the headlight position or on the daylight lamp relay (DRL) position. and open the driver side door and the lights will go out and not stay on. so it saves running your battery down. That feature is only on SLE trim line on the Solara.

2004 vw beetle drivers side window does not work with key fob or door switch and does not go down slightly when door is open or convertible top is lowered. all other windows work. door locks will not work...


Open the drivers side door and see if you can peel back the covering on the wires going into the door. Sometimes from opening and closing the door so much 1 or more of the wires break or rub bear and contact each other or something else. Check if all the wires are good.

I am having problems with my 1988 Chrysler New Yorker motorized headlight covers. Both headlight covers don't close completely when I shut the headlights off. There is about 3 inches to go on both...


I have the same problem with my 93 Salon. Take a look at the torsion bar rod end close to each headlight.There are collars that have a set screw which can be loosened to adjust the range of the door opening and closing. If the doors are going through the full cycle open to close but fall back and leave a gap such as you describe, most likely you will only need to adjust those screws. Each door will require adjustment individually. May require an allen wrench. Hope this helps.

How to change front headlight bulb on 2006 mercedes c230 sedan?


Int he back of the headlight, there is a plastic door. You need to open the little door by pressing a tab on the side to snap it off. So look for the tab first. If dust covers then it needs to be cleaned off for better observation. Once the door is open, you will see the a plug with wires attached to it. Pull the plug straightly out. There is a metal clip to hold the bulb in the place of its socket. Look carefully to see where the hook is, so you cant take off the clip from the hook. After the clip is released, the bulb can be easily taken off. Put a new bulb in, put back the clip, put in the plug, close the little plastic cover then you are done. Have fun.

I want to remove the right front fender and would like to know where all the nuts and bolts etc. that need to be removed are and the easiest way of going about it?


I just did this.
Remove the fender liner
Remove the mud guard

There are several 6mm flange bolts with 10mm heads.
3 along the inside of the hood
1 behind the top of the door accessible with the door open
2 on the bottom of the door behind the mud guard
2 behind the bumper cover, the headlight is attached to one of these.
There is a screw holding the end of the bumper to the fender. Remove it and pull the cover away from the fender. There is a large plastic clip inserted into the fender next to the two bolts that holds the bumper cover but should release when you pull the cover.

The headlight has two dowel pins that insert into the fender, removing the headlight may be better but you have to remove the bumper to get to some of the headlight assembly bolts. There are 4 bolts holding on the bumper that are accessible through the turn signal holes. The bumper will "fall" about an inch and sit on some collar bolts so it can be lifted off without one side falling (a neat feature). The turn signal is held by one Phillips screw accessible through a special hole on the inboard side of the bumper with your longest Phillips screwdriver.

How to change headlight on 2004 Mercury


When you open the hood you will see a cover where the hood latch is. Some covers have individual doors on each side of the hood latch. If you have that type just pop the release on the cover and reach down to the headlamp bulb. It comes out with a twist with the socket and then pull the bulb free. Use a kleenex or gloves to install new bulb and reverse the process.

If the whole panel is one piece there are some plastic button holders to remove to lift the cover. Your headlights are underneath. In some cases the passengers side headlight may require removing the battery to access. Then just twist the socket and remove the bulb afterwards, then reverse process.

1988 Chrysler New Yorker Auto Headlight panels won't stay open


It's possible the nylon gear in the door motor located behind center of grill is stripped. There is also an assist spring on the bar to the passenger side lamp door which may have become disconnected.
The motors cost around $80.00 for the part but if your just looking to keep them open you could insert a small screw near the pivot point of either lamp door.

2003 Seville STS low beam headlights don't work


ya its is prolly the bulbs, open your hood. look behind your headlamps, some have covers for the low beam and high beam. if there are covers turn on your high beams so you will know which bulb is your lowbeam. if you can unplug them. after cover is removed and you can acces the bulbs. they either twist out, lefty lossey. or they have little metal retainers that you have to move a certian way before you can swing the retainer out. its like a door you just have to unhook the proper side of retainer and the other side will be hinged. use a flash light and look at it close. good luck
