Corvette Headlight Motor Repair

We are experts in Corvette Headlight Motor Repair. We can rebuild and restore these dated components and return your original motor!

Corvette headlight motors seemed to be doomed from the start. They were built with a soft-cast main drive gear and an armature exposed to the elements. The armature extends out from the main case with a small thumb-wheel mounted on the end so, in case they failed to operate, you could reach in and open your headlight by turning the wheel! However, problems developed soon after introduction when corrosion would build up on the armature and bushing and would eventually cause the motor to seize. Thankfully we can restore your motors! Corvette Specialties of MD West performs all of the rebuilds right in our shop, and you will receive your same original motor when complete. We do not exchange your motor for another part! Corvette Specialties of MD West: your “Restoration Leader” for over 46 years!
