Hello Everyone, hope all are being safe.  I'm having a problem with my headlights.  The driver side headlight works fine, up & down.  The passenger side does not work at all.  I've switched all the hoses from the driver side to the passenger side on the vacuum actuator relays.  After switching each hose, I pulled the interior light switch and each time the drivers side opens & closes. After switching all hoses, still the driver side opens & closes.  Each time the passenger side never opens.  So, after doing all that, does anyone know if it might be the vacuum actuator relay or the actuator?  After fixing headlights, I need to get my wipers working.  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you,

alex

Check your e-mail. I sent you some good troubleshooting info. Sounds like you have vac lines not properly connected somewhere, or the actuator itself is leaking.
