Window wiper motor LHD - help! - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

Hi all,

 

The plastic drive on the window wiper motor in my 91 SE is ruined. I have had the garage take it out for me (didn't have the mental strength to do it myself), the garage can not source a replacement motor. SJs says they are out of production with no spares available. There are RHD motors available, but they do not fit LHD vehicles.

 

So, does anybody have any good advice? It is after all just the drive wheel that has failed.

Is it the same type of motor, just a different hand so you could use the gear from it to fix yours?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

The plastic gear is machined on its face to hold brass contact tracks in a set pattern . I might work but you would need to  open it up to see.

Hi Malcolm, the motor has been opened and gear taken out - the green and strange plastic gear has a worn-down area on the outer vertical surface (radius). Would this gear be machined differently on a RHD versus LHD?

I dont know  for sure but if they were the same as the rhd wheels I cant see why they would offer 2 versions as the electric motor itself will almost certainly be the same.  I will see if I have my spare one in the garage and split it then photograph it for you to see a rhd version. 

 

Ok , I have opened the motor and this is what the rhd wheel looks like.  So my guess is the cut out position at park is in a different place to the lhd. Please note I dont know if it has stopped at park or not as its just a spare motor I have in the garage.

Good luck
