And things were going so well...This past weekend, I went to work on rebuilding my passenger side headlight as it stopped going up about mid-travel a couple of weeks ago. To start, I thought that I used information on this site just over four years ago when I first got my Fiero ('88 coupe with a 4 cylinder that my Dad bought new back then). Anyway, I could not find the guidance this time, but I almost remembered enough to get me through. My problem now is that in the process of changing out the gear, as I did not completely remove the drive motor (I remembered the fun of getting that ball bearing to stay in place from the last time), I managed to break one of the motor brushes.

My question is this, how much do I have to replace at this point? Can I get a replacement brush, or am I searching for a new drive motor for the lamp.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

Thanks for the response! I sort of figured that was the direction I needed to go. I will get back with you on your offer.

northstar,

I just sent an e-mail to you inquiring more about the motor you have. Hopefully it will not go straight to your spam folder.

If all you broke was the bush you can get replacements at any shop that rebuilds starters and Alt's. Just look up auto electrical repair shop in the phone book. Bush will cost you around $2. Take the broken one in and they can match it up.
