This allows you to park the wiper motor, then put the blades down on the screen and adjust the arms on the splines if necessary.

The sheath the threaded bearing part with the wiper shaft running through it is firmly attached to the wiper frame underneath - welded in place on the frame. The instructions are a bit difficult to follow -- a series of pictures. Dave finally found that the adaptor arm to blade assembly that was in the blade assembly was the wrong one for the new arms; once changed to the correct one, putting the arms and blade assemblies together is very easy. Then I turned the wiper switch on and watched the arm assembly go round and round and the pivot shafts go back and forth. There is a very tight hole in the floor of the luggage area above the steering column for the wiring loom, but the wiper wires don't use that hole at all, so I guess your harness must look different to mine. It's supposed to be stationary -- the sleeve stays still and the shaft rotates inside of it.
Dave wrote about a connection block he found in England that worked well - he was not able to find the device in the U. I ended up using the old motor and other parts, and drilling out the ends to accept the '73 wiper shafts. Rob described the connection block - What I had in my mind was the plastic 240v connector block we can buy here and I assume you'd have something similar there 110v or 220v of course. Or you are a trainee, or perhaps even you who simply would like to know about Windshield Wiper Switch Wiring Diagram. In some cases, we will need to rebuild your existing motor due to a lack of cores. ~~~ Wiper Blade Adjustment A common problem when reassembling the wiper arms onto the rotating shafts that protrude through the body is that one may go down onto the hood and the arms stop in the wrong place. Then he was able to remove the nut -- bunged up the threads on the sleeves a bit and had to apply a little extra torque to get the nuts past the ruined threads.
Dave decided to clean out the fresh air box. You could originate from an internet search engine, after that locate this web site. Cancel the membership at any time if not satisfied.

It's supposed to have has a plastic grill thing in the top which catches all the leaves and such. Response 3 - Sounds like a lack of lubrication on the linkage to me. On the one hand, it might be a good way to detach the wires; on the other hand, not knowing just what's in there, Dave thought it better to do it on the work bench rather than at the awkward angle it's in still attached. The only way of getting it right out is to disconnect all the ends from the fuse panel and pull them down into the car! It shouldn't turn as you turn the nuts on the outside. Make sure it is fully seated.
The results of the gathering are uploaded on this site. Rob eventually did it by wrapping a thin loop of copper wire around the brushes and pulling them into the retract position whilst sliding the motor back into place, then letting go one side of the copper loop so the wire could be withdrawn through the crack between the motor and gearbox before it was fully pushed home. Rob concurred that cutting and re-splicing the wires might be easier. I'm leaning in favour of a fault in the parking mechanism, rather than the wiper switch. ~~~ Wiper Reassembly and Reinstallation One of the first things you will do after having the car painted is to reinstall the wiper motor.

The reverse will be even worse -- getting the wires back through that maze to the connection point. This is the parking position again.

The whole assembly isn't very expensive. If you turn the wipers off, then positioned the wiper blades onto the splines in the wiper shafts such that they were in the stopped position right where you want them, they should work fine. The threaded sleeve was completely free. You can also find customer support email or phone in the next page and ask more details about availability of this book. So, if the wiring checks out, it is most likely that kind of mechanical problem. Anyway, as a quick fix, will the total wiper assembly motor, gearbox and arms etc from a? The shafts are a larger diameter and you'll need the correct grommets from the later years, so they'll seal on the body.
It looks like it would be a bear to reassemble. ~~~ Wiper Arm Assembly Wiper Arm Assembly 1973 Super Beetle ~~~ Dave's wiper arm assembly was completely shot. Even if you decide against dismantling the gearbox and motor, you'd definitely need to repack smear the wiper arm bearings - they are plain bearings and need some lubrication.
