Currently, my drivers side headlight motor is burnt out on my 86 i4 2.5. I'm getting tired of cranking it up and down by hand. I'm thinking for the time being, due to budget concerns, I would like to just set both lights open and remove the head light motor fuse so they're constantly up, but not on. Is there a simple to reach fuse or relay for these to pull?
I know the cooling relay runs beside the headlights, I don't want to accidentally disconnect that and I can't seem to get a clear indication of which relay would stop the passenger side motor from dropping when the lights are turned off.
Look to the inboard side of the headlight assembly and you will find a single blue wire with a barrel connector. Disconnect the barrel connector. Then insert a ball point pen into the little dimple in the knob on top of the motor. Spin the knob in the direction the arrow indicates to open the headlight. It will stay up, even if the headlight switch is turned off.
