Stereo & Electronics - Headlight!!!

Driver side headlight has been a royal pain in the ass. Its been going on for about a year or more now. First the motor went out(gear stripped). So changed it. Replacement motor worked for a while and crapped out. I changed the gear in original, it worked for a while then off and on. Now it does nothing. Im thinking its a wire issue now. One slot on the connection is a miscolored. I dont know where to go from here. What do I check next. I really dont want to take it to a shop. Any sugestions?

It might be the corrosion on that connector. Once you unplug it and then plug it back in - its a roll of the dice if it will work.
You can remove the terminals from the terminal body with a large, straightened paperclip. Just remove the terminal lock from the body and then use the paperclip to depress the tang that secures the terminal in the body.
Once the terminal is out, you can clean the male terminals up with steel wool. The female terminals are a bit more challenging. (I had to end up replacing mine.)

Thanks wssix, I will try that.
Dragon, It looks dark but I dont think it is burnt. I hope its not burnt.
Just so sick of playing with it
