yes...or whatch this > v=chngW0I2Hg4


I don't want to go electric.


I fixed it, I opened the vacuum valve on the headlight switch and cleaned the rubber slider , them to took the little tension spring and gave it a little move bend. A light grease on the slider and put it back together. ZERO leak !! The doors stay closed.
