Wiper motor

Looked at my sad wee F, which hasn't been driven all winter and decided to fix the wiper motor. Started the job in a timely fashion at 8.30pm, outside, in the dark. Hey at least the torch worked.

Found a post somewhere or tother that suggested removing the motor from the wiper arm assembly in-situ was a doddle. It wasn't. Couldn't get the ratcheting spanner onto the spindle nut. But I got there with the help of short handled tools and a mirror.

Motor on the bench waiting for another day. It wines like a very p@^*@ed off cat. Suspect the bearings are to blame. Apparently they're 22mm OD, 8mm ID. Going to pinch one of my daughter's skateboard bearings and give it a whirl. shhh...
