need picture of headlamp assembly

I tore apart the passenger side headlight to fix some body damage. I had the headlight motor out and the entire headlight and all mounts. Put it back together but I got something not right. The spring goes limp when the motor arm turns. The drivers side still works fine. I figure I just have the spring or arm position wrong. I messed with it for a little while and couldn't figure it out. I'll keep trying but if somebody could take a picture of the arm position and where the spring clips on that would be real helpful. all my searches here and on the google have come up empty.

Thanks
Don

it helps because I can now see the proper arm position with lights up and down. Any way to get a picture from the opposite angle so I can see how the spring is clipped on?

thanks guys for the pictures. really helped. figured out it wasn't the arm position or how I hooked the spring on. I was missing a piece, #18 on the diagram and the arm wasn't resting on the v-shaped piece and pushing the light up. I knew it was missing and thought it would work temporarily until I replaced the part.

The story on this car is it has been wrecked multiple times. a previous owner hit that front, passenger corner and it was all out of alignment. Fender and light were crooked, hood rubbed, etc. It was put back together and worked but he had it all rigged up. I took it all apart, hammered it all back to the correct shape. Put it back together but when I remounted the light it didn't work anymore. It is missing a bunch of the parts for light housing and mounting. Now that it is straight I just need to find all the missing parts and put it together correctly.

Thanks again for the help.

I have a complete headlight assembly and a lot of random parts left from taking apart four cars. Send me a message with all the parts you need and I should be able to help you out.
