C5 Headlight golden rod fix.

I found out from having this problem that you can take apart the headlight gear box and free up the golden rod gear. It just pops or snaps together. I thought it was an easy fix after braking one rod. I had nothing to loose after the messy PB Blaster did not work in a day of soaking. Just take it apart and free the gear up 100% not just enough to move it. If anyone has broken the golden rod like I did trying to work it back and forth to free it, you can cut a slot in the stub left on the shaft for a common screw driver and adjust it. It is out of sight and will never show. Just want people with this problem to know you can take the gear box apart and free the gear before you brake it.

By the way, I took the other one apart and it works great also.
