The 1987-1988 Pontiac Fiero headlight motors are cheap and easy to rebuild!
The 1987-1988 Fieros have the GM second generation redesigned headlight motors. They are very durable and very long lasting. They are also easy to rebuild when they fail! If your headlights fail to rise and the motors keep spinning this rebuild kit will solve your problem. If the motor(s) don't run you may have a wiring or controller problem. If one actuator fails and the other probably isn't far behind.
Step by step instructions included. These headlight motors are very easy to rebuild!
Headlight motor gaskets are in stock now!!
The side cover gaskets are sometimes very brittle and may fall apart when the cover is removed to replace the drive pins. Order new side cover gaskets to ensure a quality rebuild! The die used was laser cut so the gaskets are very precise.
NOTE: You might find you can buy these kits on eBay for less. Years ago that was OK. They were like mine. Turned from Delrin bar stock. Not anymore. They are now injection molded and no where near as strong as turned Delrin.
What should you order? Typically you should order two kits (one double) with the two side gaskets. If one headlight motor is failing the other is not far behind. Typically you do not have to remove the motor part of the headlight assembly, rebuilding these headlight motors only requires you to remove the side covers. If you are like me and like to take everything apart or want to take the motor housing off to paint you should then also order the two motor gaskets.
Gear failures are very rare on the 87-88 Fiero headlight motors. If you need a new gear I offer them in hard anodized alumiunum. Click here to see these gears.
Each double rebuild kit in the drop down box below rebuilds 2 (two) headlight motors.
Small ball bearing used in these headlight motors note:
At the end of the amrature shaft, under the adjustable end play screw, is a small ball bearing. Be careful if you take the motor apart. It is very easy to loose. When putting the headlight motor back together the best way is to put a small amount of grease on the end of the shaft and put the ball bearing in the grease. That holds it in place and also provides it with some lubrication.
If you loose one I have some on hand.

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 $11.50 to Canada to $18 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
