Windshield Wiper Motor
The windshield wiper motor delivers power to the wiper linkage, which converts it into the back and forth motion of your wipers. The motor also helps for parking the wipers when you don’t need them. Its failure to operate as it should may lead to “dead” or improper functioning wipers. In some cases, they can get stuck in an incorrect position when they are turned off.
Windshield wiper motor replacement
- When replacing the windshield wiper motor, your mechanic should inspect the wipers and the linkage for signs of damage. Besides, the linkage and wipers must be properly lubricated and adjusted if necessary. If the wiper blades are worn-out, they should be replaced.
- A thorough diagnosis of the windshield wiper assembly and related components is a must before replacing the motor. This will help you to avoid unnecessary replacements.
