Rear Wiper Motor re-fitting

Post by Nick_B_GTE » Sat Mar 09, 2019 7:48 pm

I've replaced the rear wiper motor this afternoon. I got one from eBay attached to the metal plate. Is it possible to re-install it with the plate attached? Seems hard enough to get the motor back in there never mind trying to do it with the metal plate still attached. I couldn't find any help on this on the "How To" guide pages. Cheers

It will go, you may need to shave a little off the bottom edge of the hole though.

Is it easier with the wiper arm spindle/post in place first? And then does the motor angle in with the top side going in first? There must be a certain way to do it - cos it seems impossible!!

Yes, assemble the drive tube and spindle to the motor and motor to the plate. The motor can go at any height on the plate, it needs to be quite high so its bottom isn't below the lower edge of the plate. Then feed the spindle and tube into the body, get the spindle into its hole, then top of the motor first then push the bottom of the motor over the bottom of the hole in the body.

Thought - is the new motor the same length as the old one?
