And yeah, 993's are great looking cars.

Not a bad idea. We have been asking for a DIY section for a while now.

This is perfect. I believe my problem is with the locking wheel, it seems to be warn or a piece broke off and when you shut the lights off the arm retracts the wheel but it disconnects from the back of the headlight and the light stays upright. Does anyone know if this locking wheel is replaceable?

It is, I may even have one with a spring. You can see into it as the pics show. Simply put the lights up, turn off, the one that stays up pull forward and use the lock pin to hold forward. You will have room to look inside to inspect. Let us know what you find.

Cheers, mike

Hi, I havent read the above word for word but, there seems to be one thing not mentioned, One of my lights would not rise, and the motor seemed dead, these motors are so expencive, I have no idea why, the same as some wiper motors, except for the 5 wires not the normal 4, different mountings, my electrical genius stripped it, it was new inside, but there,s a thermal cut out that should cut back in, mine didnt, he jumped round it with link wire, it works, he did advise a fuse be added in the line in case there was something a miss

Default Headlight motor

Has anyone had luck rebuilding / overhauling a 968 headlight motor, or know of a business that can do such a thing? i'm pretty certain the motor itself is my issue ( left light doesn't raise, wont respond to manual movement) a quick google search shows that the corvette folks have a few businesses that specialize in this sort of motor.

Sorry for bumping and old thread but I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the headlight motor can be removed with the headlight locked in the up position? Is there enough room to access/remove it or do I need to remove the fender?
