1982-1986 Firebird Headlight Rebuild Kits $37.95



Headlight Gears:

aluminum Gear

(Hard Anodized Aluminum shown)


Replacement precision CNC machined hard anodized aluminum headlight gears for the 1982-1986 Firebird. Each new CNC machined hard anodized aluminum replacement gear includes 4 Viton rubber bumpers.

These Viton rubber bumpers are a much more durable replacement for the OEM green polyurethane bumpers which had a high failure rate. Includes 8 screws and nuts to reassemble the case.Includes a packet of high temperature grease.

This grease will not dry out like the grease that was originally used. I believe they did not use this type of grease because of the high cost of this product. It is a much better lubricant.  Rebuilding instructions included.

One gear, and 4 bumpers are needed per headlight.

Special note: There is an early version of this headlight motor used in the early Firebirds (82 and up) that uses a plastic intermediate gear like the one pictured. GM seems to have realized early on that this was a failure prone design and upgraded it to a steel gear early on.

If you have this type of headlight motor the parts do not interchange. No one offers a replacement steel intermediate gear at this time and possibly never will as it would be very difficult to manufacture.

You will not know what type of gear is in your headlight motor until you open it up.

Consider a crank tool to raise and lower the headlight buckets when you work on these headlight motors:


82-86 headlight motor rebuild kit w/o gear:

If your headlight gear is not stripped you can use this kit to rebuild your headlight motor. This kit includes 4 new rubber bumpers (the originals generally are reduced to small bits and pieces). Screws and nuts to replace the rivets you will drill out to open the motor and a packet of high temperature grease. Includes step by step rebuilding instructions and a 4 page trouble shooting copy set. 

GM motor assembly numbers:
Driver's side: 22039672
Passenger side: 22039673

The selections below are for one headlight motor. Order two if you want to rebuild both headlight motors.

  • 1982-1986 Firebird headlight gear kit :       $37.95 each
  • 1982-1986 Firebird rebuild kit W/O gear:    $10.95 each
  • 4 Bumpers (For one headlight motor gear):  $5.00 set


Someone has brought to my attention that possibly all 82 thu 86 Firebirds have that plastic intermediate gear. So I would suggest you open up your headlight motor(s) to see if you have the plastic intermediate gear before ordering. If you have the plastic intermediate gear these gears will not fit unless you acquire a metal intermediate gear somehow.



Shipping:   Shipping in the USA via First Class Mail is a flat rate of $5.50 for one gear.  $8.50 for two gears.

Shipping to areas outside of the USA: Generally I ship postal air first class mail. Shipping varies depending on what country they are going to. It ranges from $17.50 to Canada to $24 or more to Australia etc.




I do not offer free shipping.

Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation 

When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.
