NEW from Rodney Dickman

New Precision CNC machine made brass headlight motor gears for 93-02 Firebirds and Trans Ams. I have had a lot of requests for these the last few years. The original gears are plastic and very failure prone. Each gear includes a packet of Dow Corning silicone grease which is superior to the grease originally used, as it will never dry up.  Each gear also includes a brand new rubber bumper.  If your 1993-2002 Firebird headlights don't open, don't close, or your headlight motors make an awful racket, this product is for you.  If your headlights act funny when you use your factory alarm/remote door locks - installing a new gear(s) in the headlight motor(s) will cure that problem. This problem is caused by a stripped headlight motor gear.  Once the gear is replaced in the headlight motor this problem will be fixed also.

 My replacement headlight gears are CNC machined brass.

The inside of the gear is machined to match the OEM plastic gear.

Brand New  rubber bumper will be included


Installs just like OEM.   

Why buy a new $150+ headlight motor assembly from GM when you can make your existing headlight motors heavy duty with this new brass gear.   

Plenty of epoxy glue and Dow Corning grease included to re-seal/re-lube the case. 

I have found the old rubber bumpers to wear out prematurely.  I now include a NEW rubber bumper made of a tougher, more durable rubber.  These new bumpers should last the lifetime of the motor.

Each gear includes a complete detailed instruction sheet that tells you step by step how to remove the headlight motor from the car and how to open the motor to replace the gear.  This is an easy "do it yourself" repair most anyone can accomplish with basic hand tools.

Now improved!

Now upgraded to include a newly engineered special steel brace with a special plastic support bushing. I have noticed a few glue joint failures. Glue joint failures happen because the plastic that these headlight motors are made of does not take any adhesive well. The glue joint surface is small and once installed it has to take a tremendous force that occurs when the headlight gets full open and full closed and stops abruptly. I have added a special stamped steel brace with a special plastic bushing. This brace and bushing does two things. It applies a slight pressure against the side cover helping to eliminate side cover glue failures. But most importantly it adds a new bearing surface to support the shaft thus removing all the pressure of the shaft from the side cover and transferring it to this new brace. Once installed this repair should easily last the life of the car.

Why rebuild your headlight motor with a cheap plastic gear that will not last, and also, why risk having a glue joint failure? My brass gear kit ensures the actuator motor will last and the glue joint will not fail.

Fits Firebird 2002-93, Corvette 2004-97 and Saturn SC Coupe 1996-91. Replaces damaged gear inside motor.

Q: Why does the headlight motor of my 1993-2002 Firebird keep running after I turn the lights off? What's that strange buzzing?

A: There is a little plastic gear that has probably stripped out inside the headlight mechanism. This gear is replaced with my Bronze Headlight Gears.

1. Manually crank malfunctioning headlamp to the full up position.
2. Remove black plastic shroud around headlamp to gain easier access to bolts for motor.
3. Remove motor. It is held on by 3 bolts. Disconnect actuating arm from motor shaft. This is held on by one nut on the end of the motor shaft. It requires a 10mm wrench for all 4 fasteners.
4. Take the motor to the work bench and carefully pry off the cover from the gear box. 
5. Once the cover is off, you will see a nylon gear about 2 inches in diameter. There should be a spot on it where the teeth are damaged or ground off from the metal gear that meshes with it. This is where the problem resides. GM used a plastic gear, that can't stand up to the rigors of daily use.  Why replace with plastic when my brass gear makes a longer lasting, more durable headlight motor.
6. Use some epoxy glue (included) to glue the cover back on. Re-install the motor in the reverse order.
