C3 Chevrolet Corvette Headlight Opening Door Actuator Kit

C3 Headlight Opening Door Actuator Kit

The Corvette took the automotive world by storm when Chevrolet unveiled this classic American sports car more than 65 years ago. Since its first appearance as a show car at the 1953 General Motors Motorama, it’s been a wildly popular choice of car enthusiasts in the United States and around the world. The Corvette’s introduction was such a success that GM quickly ramped up its mass-production scale to meet the demands of eager buyers. 

GM and Chevrolet have launched eight different Corvette generations over the years. The third incarnation of the ‘Vette, known as C3, reigned from 1968 to 1982. These vehicles carried over the C2 chassis and engine but featured an all-new body and interior design. Chevrolet patterned the design after the Mako Shark II concept car it previously introduced in 1964. The 1969-1976 C3 Corvettes also carried the Stingray name, although this time it consisted of one word instead of the previous “Sting Ray” spelling.

Are you the proud owner of a classic C3 model? Are you looking for a reliable aftermarket parts supplier? You’ve come to the right place. Here at Top Flight Automotive, we carry a vast inventory of Corvette parts to keep your car riding smoothly and looking great. Our selection features products for every inch of your vehicle, including a C3 headlight actuator.

What Does a Headlight Actuator Do?

A headlight actuator is probably something you don’t think much about — until it fails and needs replacing. Actuators perform the essential function of controlling your headlights’ positioning. The actuator and its attached motor cause the movable headlights on a C3 Corvette to open and close when you turn them on or off. 

Here are some symptoms of a malfunctioning C3 headlight actuator:

  • The headlight doors won’t open, preventing you from driving your ‘Vette at night.
  • The headlight doors remain stuck in the open position.
  • The doors only partially open or close.
  • The doors operate erratically. You might notice them opening or closing on their own.
  • You hear grinding noises when operating the headlights, which likely indicates the actuator motor is failing.
