perhaps it's time for a new motor or the gear is worn, or fuse is bad. I would raise them manually and disconnect motors until you get it fixed.

What would cause the headlight on a 1991 Mercury Capri to retract but not raise?

The headlights "retract" by gravity but lift via a lift motor. Failed headlight lift motors are probably one of the biggest problems on early 1990 versions of the Capri. If one headlight lifts fine but the other one won't, you'll need to replace the lift motor. Mercury did put a manual lift knob behind each headlight that can be turned by hand to lift the headlight into place in the event of a motor failure. You can use the lockout switch on the center console near the emergency brake to lock the headlights in the UP position once you get both of them up properly. This avoids having to open the hood and crank the knob every time you turn the lights on. Rebuilt lift motors are available online at many autoparts places that specialize in Capri - just Google "Capri headlight lift motor"

It's reversible. When you raise the temperature of frozen mercury, it 'melts' back into liquid form (just like ice melts back into water when you warm it).

1991 carpi headlights will not retract they were working fine what do you need to do for a fix?

Under your radio is a little box, remove that and in there is a headlight lift motor relay. The clicking is coming from that. It is realy easy to change out.Answercheck the head light relay. I think my relay is starting to go bad in mine. when i put mine down i hear a click click click and they are jumpy. but the click is coming from under the dash on mine. one of these days i will have to find out whats clicking. so i can replace the relay. all i know is mine sounds like a relayOn my 91 Capri, there is a small black rectangular switch in the center console near the parking brake handle. If you push this switch, the headlights raise without turning on the headlights themselves. The headlights will not retract until you push this switch again, even if you use the regular headlight switch. By the way, my headlights always take several seconds to retract. So, if you try this, give them 5 to 10 seconds to retract. After this, they should work normally using the regular headlight switch.there is a 20 amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood by the battery if this fuse blows the headlights will not raise or lower. this fuse also powers the memory of the radio. this fuse powers the lift switch by the brake handle.
