Passenger headlight will not open sometimes.

Sometimes when I turn on lights, the right headlight (passenger) will not open. If I try multiple times, sometimes it will start working. Any ideas?

On my87 the screws on the side of the plastic cover on the headlight came loose and kept it from.opening if the plastic cover get shared it will also catch on hood opening and will stop it from opening.

If 68 to 82 its vacuum or after that its electric motor going bad , If you check some of the mags that sell vette parts ,you can buy parts to rebuild the part that leaking . It's a rubber boot that fits over rod that pushes them in and out .the kit is about $25.00. But you can get the # for the boot and just order it for $10.00.The only difference is you get a washer with 3 little tabs sticking out that holds the boot in place ,but it you are careful when you take the old one off you can reuse it . If you have a Eckler's c3 corvette's 68to82 parts mag,on page 8 ,part # A8263 or 31953 is the boot .it doesn't show the washer here.
