Is there more than 1 type of rear wiper motor?

Discussion in 'A3/S3 Forum (8L Chassis)' started by imported_alecblack, Apr 4, 2006.

  1. Guys,
    Just as the subject line says, I bought
    a second hand one of Ebay as mines
    has packed in but when i went to change it over it is completely different. My car is a A3 97 T sport and the one i bought was advertised from a A3 99 T sport. Is it a different unit for a 3 door and 5 door or are there just more than one model?

    cheers in advance

    AFAIK there is only one type for the 8L a3/s3. Could be wrong tho.

    Can you let us know the complete part number from the motor you have and I'll se if I can check it for you.
     
  4. Thanks,

    not sure where the part no is but there are 2 numbers. One on the metal casing which is printed directly on the case 101386-101/774.60021.01/17098613

    and another which is on an orange sticker on the other side of the casing

    A / U90A21.09.00
    101423-202 173-09342
    then in big bold letters

    Yup, thats a drivers side window motor for a golf/bora or beetle.

    Time to chuck it back on ebay and give the seller a bad rating if he was calling it a rear wiper motor!
     
  8. Thanks guys,

    The seller is called 'glebecs' so watch out for him. I have asked him to give me a refund but i dont hold out much hope.

    Ah well suppose i had to
    get stung sooner or later on ebay, just glad it wasnt for much.

    Anybody know how much i would get for an electric window motor?

    is it definately the motor? Could it just be the spindle binding/corroded? I would try stripping it 1st unless it smells of carbonite!

    can you post the ebay link just out of curiosity
