Acrobat Printable Version


The headlight operating mechanism should be lubricated every 15,000 miles.



  1. Remove the fuse for the headlight motor fuse.

  2. Using a small parts cleaning brush, apply white lithium grease to the rotating joints of the headlight operating mechanism.
  3. Rotate the headlamp motor by hand using the knob on top of the motor and work grease into the rotating joints as you turn the mechanism.

  4. After grease has been applied rotate the headlight mechanism through several up and down cycles to ensure that the mechanism is operating smoothly.
  5. Rotate the headlights until they are in the full down position.
  6. Install the headlight motor fuse removed in Step 1.
