The gears that drive the light to open are worn out, you will need to replace the head light motor assembly, this is common isuue with pop up motorized headlights.

Why does 97 miata headlight retractor stay in upright position?


Common problem with any brand of car with power headlights. Probably the motor. You could inspect the unit to verify that it moves freely. Check on the Miata forum.

I changed out the passenger side motor, followed all instruction, put it back together, and the headlight stays down when lights are turned on, when I turn the lights off, it comes up


You need to manualy put it to the down position there should be a small knob or small gear maybe a screw. It should be right next to or on top of the headlight ass..Turn the car off and headlights off then put the one thats up down.

My head lights will not flip up, the left one comes up but the drivers light stays down?


Most likely a bad headlight retractor motor assembly, Open hood and check at connector under hinge assembly.

How to change a marker light bulb


to change the turn signal bulb on the headlight there is usually either a screw or tab that releases parking light lense from headlight. to just completely remove the headlight there are the two screws up top and also two lower if we are taking about the right side(drivers side, standing in front of vehicle) one of the screw is to the right side down near the inner fender, it is even with the bottom of the headlight. the other screw can be seen between the headlight and the radiator support about in the same area just opposite the other side. take a flashlight with you, not too hard to see

1987 supra left headlight blowing fuse


there is a really good chance that you have a bad power or ground wire. based on the age of the vehicle i would say that it is most likely corroded but it could also be cut or burned

1997 pontiac transam headlight doors motors


i had the same problem, open the hood look by the headlights, just to the side of them you will see knobs. with the lights off turn the knobs (one at a time it is easier), turn it 'till the light come all the way up, do the same for the other then turn the lights on , they should try to go up and the immediately go down. this usually resets the motors to allow the to reach there complete stooping point.
