  1. Avensis 4d786 Thanks for your comments. Good News Today! Connected the electrics, and ran the motor several times (with the unit still stripped down as in the photo), and the bluddy control wheel jumped up from the worm-drive and began to climb from its axle! Whole unit now cleaned up, well greased, and replaced on the car.
  2. Hi guys Still sitting here with a partially stripped down wiper unit, awaiting a reply to my problem. I'm sure that several folk have carried out this reconditioning exercise succesfully in the past. If you are one of them, please come to my aid.
  3. Hi Earlier this year, my wiper motor suffered the notorious ‘permanently on intermittent’ syndrome, from which it later recovered, following a spell of dry weather. Unfortunately it has now failed to operate at all, and has required the strip and repair treatment,as kindly detailed by members responding to my previous post. I have now removed and opened the unit, to find a mess of old grease and a rust-seized drive to the wiper arm shaft, which I have managed to free-off with WD40. I was surprised to note that the shaft itself was completely rust-free, although the 'o-ring' seal at the top
  4. For some time I have felt that my demister was not functioning correctly and recently, on removing the rear hatch trim to access the wiper motor, I discovered that the twin feeds from the loom to the base of the screen were no longer connected to either the left or right hand side of the screen! I suspect that this ‘accidental disconnection’ may have occurred when a bodyshop repaired third-party damage done to my car, some six months ago. I now need some advice on how to re-affix these connections, having read elsewhere in these forums, the horror stories of torn-off tabs and melted wiri
  5. Thanks for your continuing interest.. I have now removed and opened the unit, to find a mess of old grease and a rust-seized drive to the wiper arm shaft, which I have managed to free-off with WD40. I was surprised to note that the shaft itself was completely rust-free, although the 'o-ring' seal at the top end of the shaft was a very loose fit. Sadly, I have now hit a major problem, in that I am unable to extract the orange plastic control wheel from the unit! Having read the article on the 'Workshop Forum' i was under the impression that this wheel could be easily lifted from its axle, usi
  6. Grateful for your continued assistance. My motor is exactly the same as the one in your pic, and I will now obtain a set of torx bits, as you suggested. Many thanks Derek
  7. I thank you for the prompt reply, and have ordered the suggested grommet. Now for the silly question........ Can you please tell me what type of 'screwdriver' is required to remove the cover plate from the motor assembly? I cannot locate anything in my amateur toolbox which will fit!
  8. Hi again Guys Back in January my wiper motor suffered the notorious ‘permanently on intermittent’ syndrome, from which it later recovered after, a spell of dry weather. Unfortunately it has now failed to operate at all, and will require the strip and repair treatment, as kindly detailed by members responding to my previous posts. As a rank amateur, I would appreciate some advice on the following…… 1. Which sealant/lubricant to use on the spindle and the bodywork grommet? 2. Which grease to use inside the motor unit? I have had “Carlube LM2” mentioned to me, but have no idea whether or not th
  9. Hi guys Thanks for your replies I had to wait for a dry day to work on the car, as I don't have an under-cover area. Am glad to report, however, that after some hours of glorious British Sunshine, the fault appears to have cured itself! Obviously something must have dried out since the deluges of rain we've had here recently. If the problem repeats itself, and I have to access the wiper motor, could either of you point me in the right direction to get instructions on how to remove the interior trim panel from the hatch-back lid? Being a rank amateur in these matters, I cannot see any obvi
  10. The rear screen wiper on my car continues to constantly work on "intermittant", even although I have selected "off" on the control stalk. The other wiper/washer functions appear to work ok, but the wiper will only stop completely when the ignition is turned off ! Would this be a problem with the stalk-switch, or with the wiper motor? Has anyone else experienced this weird trouble? Any advice would be welcome.
