wiper mechanism assembly

Post by Ride_on » 31 Mar 2015 12:14 am

I'm trying to reassemble the wiper mechanism to the motor, but have no idea what position it should be assembled. Anyone got any photo's of the motor spindle in the parked position?

When I replaced my wiper motor, I ran it without the wiper mechanism to let it get in the 'off' position. Then I attached the mechanism. You could look a that when installing.

Yes that was the plan, still the question is what position does it go on. I'm guessing it will work but the leverage, forces and interference with parts may dictate a certain position. Its not super important to get it right now and can be adjusted later on once the wiring and windscreen is in.
