Does anybody know if you can buy just the wiper switch and not the whole motor assembly ? I had a look at both Ecklers and Dchuk and can't find them on their own.
Here you go. :tuI'm actually after the part that goes behind the dash and that the knob is attached to
The original electric motor had the switch inside the motor and was operated by a mechanical bowden cable from the dash control.Thanks Don, the car I'm actually installing has only got the electric motor so I assumed it just had a switch. I looked at the motor kits you get from Ecklers and Dchuks and they only had the switch and not the cable, so what's the difference ?
So I gather Des they don't make the longer ones anymore ?Dean
You need a RHD cable/switch. the LHD cable is too short to reach from the position on the dash to the wiper motor itself (RHD cars have it to the right of the speedo cluster). If you cannot find the correct longer RHD unit, an option would be to use a LHD one and remount it somwehere on the dash where it will fit - might look a bit odd though if it were on the left side of the dash.
Not since 1957So I gather Des they don't make the longer ones anymore ?
