front Wiper motor

Post by leopard_pagan on Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:46 pm

Is there an easy way to get to this sod?
it needs a damn good oiling or its on its way out.. my finger wipes faster on my visor than this motor does on the van!

Sad damn...
how slow does it have to be to fail an MOT?... if there is even such a thing?
i know they do fail if its not working & no screen wash/squirter's... it does squirt screen wash.. just wipers are dog-ass-slow!

If they are that slow what will it be like in heavy rain on a motorway?

That was my thought when u first turned them on... Maybe the rubber snagging the window ...... Lent them out & were still slow! Managed to WD40 the right ones joint inside/under dash but can't get near the motor!

Obvious things:-

How good is the battery?
WD-40 the wiper switch internal terminals, stalk switches are crap on hijets.
Is it the same with the engine running?

No hesitation on starting so assume battery is healthy.
Yes they are same sloooooow speed engine on or off
Will pick up some contact cleaner some time & go around things.
Would the rear wiper motor be the same as the front one?
Yes I am taking the rear off, I know the rear gets dirty, but I do/will clean when it does.

I think they are different, but i've never had the front one in my hand to know for sure - getting to the front wiper motor should kill a couple of hours taking the dashboard out!

It's probably more work to remove the rear wiper than to fix it. It didn't work on my red one or my white one when I got them, it's very easy to trace the wiring back though. First thing, take the tailgate inner cover off, check if your are getting power to the motor - if not, check there is power to the switch.

rear wiper motors only mounted with 4-6 bolts.. & is already with in reach of being done.

lol was chatting to a chap who reckons the dash off job is "only 15 mins".. yeah for someone who does it all the time... for a first timer....

I'm sure by the time you take it all out, not break any clips, keeping all the screws in the right places, fix the motor, put it all back together - that'll be a good fair few hours gone.

I can take a head off a hijet in less than two hours - putting it back together nicely takes about 5 hours plus bleeding.
