Guys, i drove my S4 to work today and hadn't driven it for a long while and boy did it feel good! Left work and it was dark so I turned on my headlights to see that only one side would go up while the other side would try to go up lookkiing like it was winking at on coming cars.

So my question is is the motor also used on other vehicles like maybe the Trans Am etc? I found a motor on Ebay that looks similar but it is for the Elan.

Any info guys?

Thanks in advance.

Hope you are only going to replace the parts, not the entire motor:

Rodney Dickman's Automotive Accessories


You can get the Delrin bushings from other sources now, but the instructions that come with this kit are quite easy to follow, and cover everything.

Thanks! I knew I should have waited for replies here before I jumped the gun. :facepalm

Just placed the order on Ebay and I think it's from the same company. I will however order the kit for the driver's side.

Good call. I had exactly the same problem and the rebuild kit worked fine. Did both headlights though. Consider doing both.

be sure to check and tighten the brackets on the side of the motors; they move the actual light pod. motor might work, but loose brackets won't move anything. happened to me.

Yes, that's the first thing I checked.

Yes, I ordered the kit to do the other side and keeping a set as a spare.
