67 RS Headlight problem (Help)

I just got my RS/SS back from the paint shop, and have been putting the car back together. NOW, I can't get the Headlights to Close or even move.
When I took the car apart, the headlight motors worked perfect. They seem to be wired correct. When I removed them I took them out in the OPEN position.
Any sugestions?

Have you bench tested them to see if the motors still work? Taking them out in the open position shouldn't matter.

Re: 67 RS Headlight problem (Help)

I have not tested them, and I have not tightened anything to tight. When I removed them, all I did was removed the 4 bolts and pulled it straight out.
There is 3 total plugs going to the unit, the 2 wire plug on the back, and the 2 single wires that goes on a small relay on the front. kind hard to get the 2 single wires backwards because of the length,,,,,, any sugestions?
How would I test from here?

Thanks Camaro67_rcl
With the diagram you sent me I was able to track down my problem. The R2 Relay has a short in it.
Thanks again,
Mark
