Headlight Actuator Relay

I have an "85" the has developed a problem of being a "One Eyed Bandit", I have trced it down to being the relay because the headlight opens "When It Want To" and the motor sounds fine and operates perfectly. The cheap repair manual that I have says nothing about this "Relay" and its location, but it shows it in the wiring schematic. There is a relay for the right side and there is a relay for the left side, but it doesn't tell me where they are located on the car. I don't know if it's located behind the dash or if is located in that "Little Box" on the front lower left fender skirt section. It is just a "Plug-n-Play" replacement, not that difficult, I just need to know where it is! I would greatly appreciate any help you can send my way! Thanks.

Its behind the little cover on the left side front wheel well behind where the horn is. There are two 7mm screws that hold the cover on.

Good luck

Have you checked the plastic inserts? My 88 did that and after looking at everything else, module, switch, connections, it was those friggin bushings.........

I replaced the relay - wasn't it. I replaced the bushings - wasn't it either. Ended up being the motor after all! It was weak enough that it wouldn't open it, but would close it. Go figure ! Anyways, thanks everyone for all your help and suggestions. It has been Greatly Appreciated !!!!

Sincerely,
BadVette.
