On my Eclat, the right headlight no longer goes up. But the relay switches, I think that the motor is defective. Where can I buy an engine?

It could be just a sticky mechanism. Assuming the Eclat 2.2 is the same as the (early) Excle, there is a knob under the motor you can just reach (going under the bumper) and turn. That will manually raise or lower the headlight pod and will allow you to feel how smooth everything is working. You can also turn the lights on and then turn the knob, to help to motor and see if it works once the initial friction is overcome.

I think the motors are Toyota, not that easy to get to unfortunately.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
