Righto, the rear wiper has failed on my Sei. Seems to be a common fault on here recently.

I've looked at the price of new ones from FIAT and 3rd party suppliers and hmmmmm.... no. Scrap yards have non-either.

But i looked round the parts CD and stumbled across the Punto Mk2 and that seems to use the same motor. The part numbers don't match but they look the same on the pictures. Not very technical i know, but the parts CD is usually quite accurate in its dipictions of parts.

I've found some MK2 punto ones for sale cheap at online scrappies but its still a fair amount to spend if it doesn't fit.

So what do you think from the pics, do you think it will fit?

Only prob with looking on parts manual and trying to match stuff up by how it appears on there is that they may well be different but they used the same basic picture to represent the wiper motor-doesn't actually mean its the same. Does a cinq one not fit? I know of a sei at a local scrap yard, ill have a look if you want?

Rich.

I know the Cinq one is diff. I looked at most of the cars on the parts CD trying to find one that matched. All had different pics for the motor, cept for the Punto Mk2.
If your heading to the scrapyard then yeah if you don't mind taking a looky at the Sei. Don't go there speacialy tho, its not all that important. Just another thing on my to do list.

I have a Mk2 Punto I'm scrapping - want the wiper motor? I'll take it out and compare it with the pic of the one on eBay if you are still looking for one.

There you go - you wait four days for a bus and then two come along together. Take your pick - I'll take mine out in the morning (oo-er missus) and if its the same one you can have it for £15 including air mail postage to wherever Lytham-St.Annes is (sounds like a cream for bunions).

Pm Slippy and see if his works out cheaper - the postage will be lower so his may be the best option.

Its south of mingin blackpool. Same dialing code yes, postcode of FY8 is for Lytham St.Annes only. Blackpool has FY4 and similar.

Noticed today that Blackpool Airport is actually within the St.Annes boundry, which was nice.

Anywho, Slippy i'll prolly take your motor from you. Saves having to pay the extra to ship it from Ireland.
