My headlight covers seem to be working fine other than they don't open all the way.
after trying some adjustments I tried disconnecting the springs and they open all the way.
while searching for info here today I noticed a pic of someone's and the springs were hooked to back (radiator side) of the brackets. mine are hooked to the front (grill side) of the brackets. so are my springs on backwards ?
thanks in advance for your input

The springs are a fail safe to ensure that with a vacuum system failure the doors will stay open without vacuum.

Quick question: Is there supposed to be two springs per light set or just one. Four total or just two?
Thanks,
