WANTED- Front wiper motor for Series 2.

Post by Rommel » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:59 am

I see that my wipers are getting very slow, then just stopping altogether. Checked the blade arm attachments and they seem fine, as do the spindles. Suspect the motor is dying, seems to correspond with other people's experiences!

If anyone has a good working one they can post out please let me know.

Might be worth opening up the motor and looking at brushes and lubrication.

Quite possibly- the issue came upon me quite suddenly and with an MOT looming, I thought of the easy option.
Are the carbon brushes easy to replace and is there a source for them?

I think John has opened up one of these, and posted some details.
There are companies on the web that specialise in motor bushes; dimensions needed. If over-long, they are easily shortened; just the cross-section that needs to be correct.
Apologies for lack of detail - not a job I've had to do on this car yet.

No worries Chris- I think that another reason i was thinking of direct replacement is that with a 4 month old daughter, time is in short supply!
I'll have a search on here.

Thanks
