Fiero headlights
1988 Fiero Formula headlights, parking lights, turn signals, hazard flashers. Also, how to lock the headlights in the upright position. All you need to do is pop them up, turn them off, and really quickly turn on the parking lights before the lights go down.

Pontiac Fiero Gen. 1 Headlight Motor Repair - A Partial Victory
Worn limit switch brushes put a big fat asterisk on my repair of an almost 19-year-old Gen.1 Pontiac Fiero headlight motor that was running the battery down because it would not shut off even when the headlights were closed. I'll need to get a good limit switch assembly and install it in the motor before I can call this one completely repaired. The knob is still twitching and clicking for a few seconds after the motor raises and lowers the headlights. But at least there's not that barely audible "tick-tick" that was a sure sign that the motor was not shutting off. In the three days the car was parked before I shot the end of this video, the battery did not run down. I'll also have to start haunting the salvage yards -- the '84-'86 Fiero passenger side motor is the same as the '82-'86 Firebird driver's side motor, and vice versa. Gotta love that GM parts bin.

Cheap fix, Firebird Trans Am headlight motors
Here is a quick cheap tech tip on how to repair your headlight motors, if the bushings have gone out in the gear.





Changing a Fiero Headlight
Coming home from my buddy's house in Grayslake Saturday night, a cop stopped me and told me my passengers' side headlight was burned out. (High beam, fine, low beam not working.) Fortunately, the Wal-Mart in Gurnee is open 24 hours a day, and I was able to buy one before I drove back to Chicago. I replaced the old one Sunday afternoon. All those sounds you hear are people leaving the 10:45am service at the church down the street and arriving for the 12:45 service. Noisy, aren't they? :D Changing a Fiero headlight is a little more difficult than changing the usual sealed-beam headlight unit, since the Fiero has retractable headlights, but only because the arm between the headlight motor and the headlight assembly can trap your hand if you don't follow the directions in the owner's manual. But it's no more difficult that changing one on Firebirds and Corvettes of that era, or any other car with hidden headlights, for that matter. You people who have cars made since about 1986 and only have to replace a halogen bulb can recuse yourselves. But you do have to worry about not getting oils from your fingers on the bulb; it shortens the life of it. And there is that little matter of water condensation inside the lens. And yellowing and dulling that can only be gotten rid of by buffing compound and elbow grease. The job on the Fiero takes about 20 minutes, during which time I found that the retaining spring that keeps the headlight unit from flopping around had rusted and fallen off. It can wait until I have another order from the Fiero Store;) Factoid: The first car sold in the U.S. since 1939 to have non-sealed-beam headlights was the 1984 Lincoln Mark VII, which was all-new that year. The law lifting the ban on non-sealed-beams was passed by Congress in 1984, but because of engineering lead-times, they did not start appearing on other cars sold here, (including other Lincolns), until 1986. It cost Lincoln a pile of money, but they had two Mark VII headlight systems ready to go for the '84 model year, depending on how Congress' vote went, simply because they wanted the publicity value of being first out the gate.

Fiero Aerodynamics Experiment #5
This video shows you how the airflow is affected when you pop up the headlights on a Pontiac Fiero. I should mention that my headlights are low-profile. The stock headlights will pop up further, making the effect more pronounced. As you can see, the airflow over the hood goes crazy when the headlights pop up, and then smooths out again when they're retracted.
