Windscreen wiper overhaul

Recommended Posts

On my 1991 200TDI I'm about to strip the dash down to bare metal, sound proof and rebuild it etc.
So seems like a good time to swap out the windscreen wiper pieces that fail - made more relevant as I've just drive 3,500 miles through lashing rain with noisy wipers (new wiper blades and WD40 inside the blade holder connections didn't help).

Can anybody advise on what parts numbers fail please?
I  like to do something once, so will probably buy a new motor as well even though its not that hard to get too to replace later etc)

Thanks ;)
Though my question was more 'what parts do I need' as I'll need to strip it out, guestimate what parts to replace, find their parts numbers and then wait about 10 days for delivery - during which time I cant stick the dash back together. So trying to get organised enough to have all of the parts on hand so the strip down and rebuild can be done in 2-3 days etc

The motor will most likely be fine, and is easy to change anyway without dismantling everything.

Replace both wheel boxes and the drive rack.

Use genuine LR parts.

Thanks as always mate. Just checking before I order - they are:
2 * DKU500010 - https://www.lrworkshop.com/parts/DKU500010
2 * 37H5208L -  https://www.lrworkshop.com/parts/37H5208L

Will from Landroverworkshop.com was kind enough to email me and say I need  PRC8495 rather than DKU500010 - his VIN checking system I was replying on had a slight hic up on this...
