Front wiper mechanism

Post by ghaddon1701 »

Hi all,
I am in need of a front wiper mechanism. With no wear in the bushes or the spindle. Also the spindle pipe must be clear for washer fluid to pass through. The ends of the pipe must not be rusty either so the rubber washer hoses have something to slide over. A brand new mechanism sold on ebay fairly recently but I missed it. The motor I do not need. I am prepared to pay good money for this part. Thanks.

Regards Graham

The tube the screen wash flows through ie your spindle pipe can be unblocked reasonably easily. I use a bit of guitar string (the D one) but any similar diameter wire or strimmer line (v thin one) will do. BTW the blue strimmer line can be used to unblock the tube run from rear and front screen wash pipes.

Yes. However worn bushes and a worn spindle is a bit more difficult to fix. Mine looks to have been lubricated with brown dust.
