Headlamp pods going up and down.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm sure I have read about this here somewhere but cant find the thread.

I have just changed out one of my pod lift motors as my old one was very sluggish.

On fitting the replacement, with lights on, they come up and stay up. All good.

However, when I turn lights off, they go down and up and down and up. etc etc.

Where should I be looking? Bad contact somewhere??

Si

Funny isn't it. Sometimes you answer your own questions.

It was a bad contact within the replacement motor. Diagnosis got compounded by another bad contact in the light switch in the binnacle.

Anyway, all working now. Pod speed matched.

I'll have to investigate the headlight switch - replacement from SJs is £40 including delivery!!!!

Absolutely.

Had a look inside the old motor - the grease had turned to sludge. I could have just cleaned it up but found another motor on Ebay that was pristine inside. I think it just needs a good overhaul.

I'm putting the old motor back on Ebay as its likely still servicable.
