When I originally wanted to rebuild my wiper motor, I could not find much info out there. Most advice seemed to be to send the motor away for a rebuild. This wasn't an option for me in my current location. I read up as much as I could, bought a rebuild kit, and was able to get my motor back to good working condition. 

I decided to write this rebuild guide to further the body of knowledge on this forum, and help others that might want to give this a go, but who might not know where to start or what to do. I found it fun and completely do-able. Big smile

Here is the guide rev 1, edited to include comments from forum members who have replied with comments after they used it to rebuild their own motors:


Let me know if you have success in returning your old motor to life!

If you need new gaskets, the pattern for you to cut your own is a separate post on the "How to" forum.

Good luck!

Mike

Edited for clarity and to remove Rev0 and upload Rev1 of the guide

I purchased  a set of  n.o.s. Trico kits off eBay a couple of months ago . I believe they shipped from Turkey.

Hey Mike,

Yes, I also found mine on eBay. They are hard to find but they are out there.

Good luck!
