Hi again, I have replaced one of my headlight/mator and the new one only has 5 wires instead of 6, would you be able to point me in the right direction to wire it up.

Thanks again,
Ben.

before we go and rewire your car..

do you still have the original motor assembly....

did just the driven gear strip and need replacing????   the shaft has a worm gear machined into the end.. that drives a big plastic gear with the teeth around the outside.. those plastic gears strip...

with the motor off.. they are easily replaced..

gm as far as i know.. did not put something there that was NOT used.. there are also various devices to control and are controlled by the headlight door motors..

i think you have the WRONG one.. some how.. but i don't know for sure...

there are several articles on headlight door motors...


check this forum post from the  corvette fever  forum on this site..

i will have to study the wiring for the C4 headlights...


can you supply the GM part numbers off the 6 wire original assembly and the replacement 5 wire assembly..

just because the look alike.. does not mean they are the same...   just last week i drove a friend all the way across los angeles.. to pick up a door for his 69 chevy nova...  the drivers door... when we got there.. all they had was the passenger door.. well it fits why don't you want it..  i wonder if they will realize who filled their gate lock with crazy glue ..

The car only had one light when I bought it and the owner gave me a wreked bonnet with the replacement light, I cant find a part number on the replacement light without having to remove it. From the wireing diagrams I have 84-87 door motors have 3 wires and 88 on have 2 (dark green and grey) the 88 wirering diagram I have is a bit hard to understand. The original motor has a plastic housing and the replacement is cast alloy.

Thanks,
Ben.

i am lost on this as i don't have any of these to examine first hand...

can you examine the bonnet... see if there is a VIN number on it.. you should be able to decode what year it came from... the 10th digit denotes the year..

Years 1980 through 2000 are designated by a letter, beginning with A and ending with Y. The letters I, O, Q, U, and Z are not used, because they can be easily confused with either a number or another letter.

A: 1980
B: 1981
C: 1982
D: 1983
E: 1984
F: 1985
G: 1986
H: 1987
I: not used
J – 1988
K: 1989
L: 1990
M: 1991
N: 1992
O: not used
P: 1993
Q: not used
R: 1994
S: 1995
T: 1996
U: not used
V: 1997
W: 1998
X: 1999
Y: 2000
Z: not used


From 2001 through 2009, numbers were used to designate a vehicle's model year.

1: 2001
2: 2002
3: 2003
4: 2004
5: 2005
6: 2006
7: 2007
8 – 2008
9: 2009
