Default 1984 headlight issues

Both headlights went up and down without fail until a few weeks ago one wouldn’t come up, 10 miles down the road it will pop up. And then not go down. Next morning headlight is down. Now the other one is doing same thing. Up and down when they feel like it. I dont hear motor running, telling me its the gears. Any advice. And ive looked for the plastic housing motors and cannot find. Please help.
Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

I believe you can get metal gears for them from the aftermarket.

Thanks for the response. Trying to find a set of refurbished motors are not panning out. Im gonna take a shot at rebuilding them myself using a gear rebuild kit.

I followed this YouTube video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sPj1kJm4AnU

Took me a few hours. 2nd one went easier. I had one screw that didn't want to come out of the 1st one. I had to run to auto zone to get a torx screwdriver for the difficult one that I you can't get to with a torx socket. Bought the metal gears from Ecklers. Not a difficult job. Go for it.
