scrappy here i have one headlight that keeps popping up when i turn the car off.
now ive rebuilt both actuators, and replaced the vacuum actuator relays with new units from wilcox corvette parts. the actuators are only about 1 1/2 months old. the headlights worked great for the month and a half till last week when the passenger headlight started popping up when i turned the car off. no vacuum leaks anywhere.

thnx

i dont think so i mean they worked RIGHT for a month and 1\2
then all the sudden popeye.

what's weird is the'll be closed during driving and when the car is turned off the passenger one will just pop-up.

when their down if i turn them on they'll both open and close like normal

i checked the vacuum lines anyways and found nothing. i called wilcox corvette since the relays were new and they said that its VERY uncommon for relays to go bad and there isn't a warranty anyways
:thud:

thnx

Disconnect you vacuum hose's from the lights. When they are down they should stay down and when they are up they should stay up. This will check the maniacal parts.

Then swap the vacuum switches,(I think you are calling these relays) There are is on for the right and the left. If the problem follows then one is bad. That only leaves the actors
