There's a plastic gear inside the headlight motor that becomes stripped, which causes the grinding noise. You can either buy an aftermarket metal one (an internet search will turn up some good sites) or use pieces from a kit for power windows. I brought the idea up to my mechanic and he had it done in less than a day for about $110. You can buy a refurbished headlight motor $180. I tried replacing the gears in my headlight motor, but after a while, the gear ended up stripped again. I recommended replacing the motor. Go to YouTube and type in 4th gen firebird trans am headlight fix. Easy 10 minute adjustment at no cost. Mine ground really bad, thought I had to replace the gears.
