Hi.

The only problem I'm having on my 1991 Testarossa involves the passenger side headlight. It pops up, but seems to begin cycling back down before it stops - almost like it's started its descent already. When the car is stationary, the light will stay up indefinitely, but when it's driving, it will eventually droop, drop, and then re-deploy, again ending up slight lower than the other headlight.

If I push down on the driver's headlight, it's very firm. If I apply the same pressure to the passenger side, it will duplicate the driving reaction - the light will drop back into the car, then pop up and slightly begin its descent before stopping. Clearly, the light isn't parking in its correct, locked, upright position.

Any tips before I start digging in there?

Thanks.
