Front Wiper woes


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Been outside this evening to try and fix the Wipers on my 1998 110

I've only had it a week and the wipers are playing up. They will not park correctly when I return the stalk to the 'off' position, they just stop as soon as I turn the stalk off. This happens in all three postions - fast (!), Normal and Intermitent.

According to the bills I've got it had new wiper motor about 2 weeks ago. I've had the dash apart and it does look new. I've also checked the stalk itself but this looks OK.

Could the garage (non LR) fitted it incorrectly - is there a way to check? Also, is there a relay on the circuit -I looked in the fuse box and in the engine bay, but could'nt find it? Perhaps this is the cause??

I've looked in the Tech archive but could'nt see what I was looking for - can anyone help???

cheers

Gavin

the relay is for the intermittent wipe function & should be behind the main [under dash] fusebox, it has nothing to do with wiper parking, you need a new park switch on the motor LR part number 520160, maybe yours isn't fitted correctly or has just decided to give up.

fix it, switch isn't that expensive & you'll be much happeir not trying to second guess the wiper motor.

Thanks for the rapid replies :D

Doesn't the switch come with the new motor???? or is moved across when a new one is fitted?

comes pre-attached to the new motor or it should do, double check yours it's a translucent white plastic block that clicks into the motor body next to the electrical connection.

Can you see it with the wiper in-situ? I could see a white plug which plugged into a 'yellowish' block - that was the main wiring (4 of them I think) which came from behind the dash.

as ^^^ Luke says, it just clicks in.

Ordered one from BeamEnds along with some 'fir tree' clips for the headlining....to replace the ones that are bound to break when I remove the front headlining to try and find where the leak from the the roof/sunroof is coming from....drivers side has about 1/2 pint of water in this morning, it's dripping from the top front corner edge by the sun visors..

An exact me-too on the leak on my 2002 90 CSW.

I think mine is the mastic sealant directly below the most forward part of the guttering.

The car's under warranty, so Lancaster are sorting it out, I have a Freelander 2 TD4 S courtesy car to play with whilst gagging for me proper Landy back :)
