Replacement Headlight Motor Drive Gear

I ordered a couple of headlight motor drive gears from Zip Corvette. Fitting the new gear was simple, but a good tip is to mark the position of the old gear on the casing before you remove it, this makes it a lot easier to re-fit the headlight motor to the car (as the gear will engage with the pivot shaft when the headlight is in the closed position).

With the new gear fitted the headlight is now working 100% correctly, both headlights open and close in perfect sync.
