456 headlight cover

Both my 456 headlights work but the headlight cover on one does
not open. Any suggestions?

Verify power at the motor connector. If OK, you'll likely need a new headlight motor, as there are no serviceable parts/adjustments possible.. You can try to cycle the motor with the override knob...Sometimes, the internal contacts within the internal motor position switch get a bit oxidized. I recently went through this exercise on a client's 456M.

If you can remove the motor you should be able to get it rebuilt at any good electrical shop if you can't get it to work otherwise.
