    Is there much difference in torque between the different wiper motors?

    I haven't got the fiesta wiper motor wired in yet so I can't comment on the operation of that motor but the Audi wiper motor seemed to have no problem operating the pantograph wiper setup

    Got one last system to figure out a power source to.

    The HVAC system. It requires two 15 Amp circuits.
    I have 2 circuits available that can carry that amperage but its hot all the time, so I think I'll install a relay that will carry the required amperage and have it activated by a circuit of a lesser amperage (7.5 amps)that is hot in the acc/run position.

    Got the wiper motor installed and started to run the wires to the BCM.

    I'm using this contact strip so I wont have to run the wires down the lifting arms. Should make the install look a little cleaner , Other circuits in the canopy will also use this

    Neat solution Brett!

    Did you get this from the breakers yard? What vehicle does it come from?

    Yes, Got it from the breakers yard.

    Its from the side sliding door on a 2000 Mazda MPV.

    It has 8 contact points, so if needed you can install one on each side of the car to get 16 contact points total.

    If you need the dimensions let me know and I'll post them.

    Dash1.jpgNice unit, Unfortunately Mazda SUVs are rarer than Lamborghinis here. I use a 4 way strip which puts power to the 12v battery in the doors for the puddle and safety lights. Also used one contact as a door switch for the interior lights.

    Thats another thing that I have to decide what to do with.

    The dash has door ajar lights that come on to let you know that a door isn't closed completely.(also have ajar circuits for the bonnet and boot)

    My options are to ground those circuits(there are 4 circuits left front, left rear, right front, right rear) so the lights wont turn on or wire in a switch to make the circuits functional. If I do that I think I'd put a switch on both sides to make sure that the latches on both sides are secure.

    Got the electrical contact board installed today.

    The only thing that I could test it on were the mirrors and the overhead dome light, nothing else is ready.

    Its been a while since I played with the mirrors. I don't remember them being this noisy. Maybe They need a going through and have everything checked out and lubed. Just add another item to the list of things that need to get done.

    Anyway everything worked with no issues.
