    Driver's Side Headlight Arm

    Yesterday when I parked the car and turned the headlights off, the driver's side light popped really loud. When I tried to turn the headlights back on, the driver's side headlight didn't pop up.

    After I got home, I took a look and saw that the arm from the headlight to the headlight motor had popped off of the motor.

    I put both motors in the up position and removed the fuses so the stay in the up position, but had to use a zip tie to keep the headlight arm connected to the motor so it stays up.

    Any ideas on how I can reconnect the headlight arm to the headlight motor the right way?

    You have to get in there and see what happened to it. Then replace the bits that need replacing. Pick N Pull is self service, so just grab what you need and leave the rest behind.
