golf mk 3 wiper motor changed -tips for future
changed a mates wiper motor on his golf recently, no manual and no experience so took us half a day plus [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
1) To take the wiper off its spindle- bend the wiperarm on its hinge first (spent ages firstly trying to pull it off [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img])
2) When a wiper motor breaks, it will break somewhere in the cycle- the only way to remedy is to play with the link that goes onto the end of the motor at different angles, trial by error untill its ok.
Initially the wipers when we re-fitted were going up first rather than down and stopped at the top of the screen [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img] ended up getting the AA out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img]
