97 Brava 1.4s Wiper Motor ????????????

Rear Wiper has died, no fuses seem to be blown. Rear high level brake light and rear washer work ok so i'm assuming its not the connection blocks on the back sill and tailgate? If its the motor could i check by just using a multimeter between the motor terminals to look for 12v when the switch is on? If it is the motor where's the best place to get a cheap new replacement?

It WILL be the motor. Try clening it up first. A few have had success doing this. Failing that - off to the scrap yard!

What exactly do you mean by 'cleaning'? Cleaning the contacts or stripping down the motor itself?

Try cleaning the contacts 1st - if that fails go for the stripping

Re: 97 Brava 1.4s Wiper Motor ????????????

well i am a bit strange....i dont like rear wipers, i think they are a waste! i never use mine and i think the back looks smoother with out them! I am probably only going to take it off anyway....

like i say i dont know what its worth, probably best if you call around you breakers, find out what the cheapest you can get them for and we can go from there! where abouts are you in the country?
