Raise the headlights, then unplug the harness from the headlight and open the clip that holds the wire loom.
Unplug the single blue wire connector on the inboard side of the assembly.
Using a 10mm deepwell socket and a ratchet, loosen but do not remove the two 10mm nuts securing the assembly to the front compartment wall.
Using the same socket and ratchet, feel underneath for similar studs and nuts. Loosen them about 5-6 turns each. No need to remove because the mechanism is slotted on the bottom.
Reconnect the single blue wire connector and turn off the headlight switch. The headlight will retract.
Unplug the harness leading from the chassis harness to the relay mounted on the side of the headlight assembly.
Unplug the single blue wire connector.
Now remove the two 10mm nuts at the top of the assembly and you can work the assembly up and out of the compartment. You may have to hold the headlight door slightly open for extra clearance.
You can rotate the motor by inserting a phillips screwdriver into the dimples in the motor knob. Locate the small clip that holds the triangular shaped metal piece to the short drive arm. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver between the pin and clip and twist. Be sure to keep your finger on the clip to prevent loss. It will take a flying leap, otherwise.
With a little exertion, you can now lift that triangular piece up and away from the pin on the drive arm. Reinstall the
clip onto the arm or store it in a safe place.
Again, using the 10mm socket and ratchet, remove the 3 bolts that secure the motor to the headlight mechanism. You may have to rotate the knob to align it with the opening in the mechanism in order to retract the motor once you've removed the 3 mounting bolts.
If you plan to go beyond these steps, come back and ask for further instructions since you can do damage that will render the motor useless.
