I just bought my 1st Corvette.....A nice 1984....It has a problem with the headlights.....the left comes open easily when turned on. The right stays closed. If i bump it a couple of times, it opens. Can anyone lead me in the right direction as to a possible cause and remedy???? Are they vacuum or electric motors? Thanks in advance.
