replaced wiper motor
HI ,When I got my Lag tourer II the rear wiper did not work.(surprise) So I opened the glass bit and tried to move the wiper ,it was seized solid.And when I tried the motor it did not work although there was power to it.
I sprayed some ACF onto the spindle after removing the circlip and kept trying it over the next few days and eventually got the wiper to move .
I went to spares 24/7 to look for a wiper motor but there was only one which they wanted £125 + £20 p&p for
So I kept looking on
and I spotted a Clio one which had the same motor but a different mounting bracket.I got it for £11.50 +p&p £5.83 !!!
Just swapped the mountings and hey presto it fits and works ,BUT the first time I tried it the Glass flexed because the spindle was still very tight.So the next job is to remove the wiper and spindle and fettle them.
When I get My puller .
I can see that if the wiper is switched on and the arm is seized then it could very easily cause the glass to shatter under the pressure, especially if moving over a bumpy surface.
Take care y'all
