Just a quick note to thank the Ogre. Using his site I was able to troubleshoot the headlight issues I was having with the car I got my daughter. Turned out to be a bad contact in headlight switch. Now if I can just get the passenger side light to quit hanging up and stopping before it gets all the way up! Installed Rodneys bushings in the motors this morning and both came up but would not go back down. Thanks again Ogre as always a big help.

Sad to say this is the best looking part of the car so far!

I have to agree big time!!! I have used info from his site constantly!!!! If the motor goes up and not down check the limit switch behind the little cover on thw bad motor, you should see it mechanically ( and hear it) move across and switch the polarity of the motor as it reaches full up. They get corroded and dont make contact. Mine didnt go up or down it was so bad yet I had the proper voltages at the relays and at the motor. I cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and put some dielectic grease on the contacts and also on the armature of the motor. ( not a lot, little bit goes a long way) also resoldered the wire going to the contacts. Worked like new again!! Good luck, hope this helps.

If I only had ONE more part it will be finished...... famous last words.....

Any self serving Fiero fanatic knows that the first place to look for great Fiero information is in the Ogre's Cave. Number 1 on my Favotires list.

Thanks Ogre for all you do!

The Ogre's sight is awesome. On a side note, you might try changing out the limit switches. Took care of the problems with mine doing the same thing. Just a thought.
