    Recommended wiper motor

    Hi,

    I'm trying to find the same kind of motor I had initially. It had an output shaft that was flattened on both sides. I'm only finding motors with a round output shaft. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    I have the OEM Bosch WWC 12L 612 motor still that I will never use that I could be persuaded to let go if you become desperate enough. LOL

    However you could update your system to a newer motor and just replace the lever to accept the spline shaft motors

    If interest in the motor that I have I'll test it to see if it even works.

    ...and should you not take Brett's offer, see http://www.sterlingkitcars.com/membe...wiper-kit.html. Last time I talked to the folks at https://www.amequipment.com/ (Dave's old supplier), all components were still available...and cheaper than his deluxe kit I bought. In fact, I still have that kit in the garage, but not letting it go...sorry.

    If I remember, there is a post on the sterling site that has part numbers and pricing for replacing all wiper components including the motor.

    I think it was "vpogv" that even called the company and made sure those items would work in our cars.

    But I do know that I did some posting on the sterling site that listed replacement parts for the wiper system.

    The newer motors however did have the spline shafts and the old levers needed to be replaced with the spline shaft version.

    Don't remember if the new motors used coast to park or the dynamic park feature.

    Also By installing that VW relay you can convert over to intermittent wipers also real easy

    That was my first stop, Brett. I remembered there being a post about it. Unfortunately I've locked myself out of the Sterling site, but I have Rick trying to help me get back in.
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    from research on the web this is the replacement motor for the Bosch WWC wiper motor. Has the 3 wire harness. Just be careful on the one you order, they make a 24v one also.
    You will have to change the lever for the spline version.

    This company has the double flat side shaft motor. I think it is the 226 series but the end of the shaft is not threaded (at least the one I saw wasn't threaded)
