my 67 RS money pit has been driving me bonkers. whe I first bought the car from a guy in PA, he told me " just connect a battery, all the lights work fine" yeah right. the drivers side headlight cover opened 1/10th of the way then stopped. passenger side decicided not to wake up at all. after a saturation of Liquid wrench penetrating oil , I managed to have the drivers headlight cover open fine. it wouldnt close at all (later found out you need the key in the on position for that) but my Passenger light dont do anything, I can click the little switches and they click ok, I ran a continuity / voltage test on them and they are recieving current. BUT I cant figure out how to get the assembly out of the car to inspect the motor, or where the wires are for the motor, I looked in front of the battery, the junction block is there, but nothing going down to the lights. where do they hide the front harness.. I cant seem to find it...

It's up inside the left fender. The harness runs from the firewall up to a bracket inside the fender. You can see the bolt holding it, look at the inside lip of the fender near the windshield bottle. There are some relays and at least one circut breaker. The circut breaker can wear out and not pass voltage. It's a little metal rectangular can with two screws on it.

I will give it a shot and see what luck i have, are there 2 circut breakers, one for each headlight, that would be why only 1 works?
