    Has anyone done a 3 spd wiper mtr rebuild. Are parts readily available and from where. Factory service manual doesn't address this. Thanks.

    I dissected a trashed one a long time ago just so see if I could without a lot of $$ of effort as I really didn't need it. The big white gear was so dry rotted was the biggest problem. It's a simple motor, if everything's in good shape and works now. It's mostly a clean up old gunky grease, clean contacts, check wiring, re-grease and put it back together. If you've done a starter or alt rebuild, you can do it. It's the outside case that's hard to make look good like new. Good Luck

    I'm doing one right now. I took some pictures of the process, but not in super-detail. Maybe I'll post it when it's done if I have enough pics to make it worth while.

    Good on you! I believe that you should post the pics you have when done with steps of how. It will be beneficial, even if not complete .

    They are pretty easy as stated above. The only place I have seen instructions are in the Prestolite manuals which I have if needed a scan. You do have to watch how they are clocked when put back together.

    If you could do that it would be a great help. The clocking and reassembly Info would be a great help. Thanks

    Looks like I don't need to post any photos. I came across this today.

    I don't recommend taking the windings out of the motor housing if you don't have to, or removing the contact from the switch plate.

    Also, I haven't been able to find a source for the fiberglass covered wire that goes into the motor housing. Still searching for that item.
