Wiper motor problems on a 156
I had posted in an earlier thread about a problem i was having with my wiper motors. They slowly started to deteriorate over maybe a two year period. Anyway now the motor is knackered and i have had the motor out, oiled, cleaned and refitted and wasn't much better.
So i ordered one in through o'Donoghues in Ballyfermot and it arrived the next day.
Long story short....i tried fitting the new motor whilst it was snowing and when i was finished the wipers were going backwards( i Think). So i thought, hey no probs, i'll just strip it back out and reverse the linkage and bob will be uncle. Not so.... i stripped it out again and refitted after another adjustment. Now the wipers home position is halfway up the windscreen. When i turn the wipers on they wipe downwards half a stroke. Then they travel a full stroke back up the windscreen and finish back at the home position halfway up the windscreen.
I have sat down and thought about this for over 2 weeks at this stage and cannot understand how they operate in this fashion.
Can anyone throw any light on this for me.
I was thinking that maybe they sold me a left handed one.
