Little while ago,\n\nThe motor died on my rear wiper 98 Sw2 died. It's died before, and\nI've rebuilt it, but that was a gradual thing. This time it was just\na full stop. Unfortunately my volt-meter had died and I was waiting\nfor Canadian tire to put them on sale, so I went ahead and bought a\nused motor from [url]http://www.6thplanetusedparts.com/[/url] (great service by\nthe way)\n\nLong painful story. My motor was fine... One of the tiny wires\nconnecting the mult-function stick in the steering column (I always\ncalled them "funky flippers"), had separated.\n\nOnce you have the steering column housing off (not hard, just\nirritating due to the depth of some of the bolts inside the housing),\nit was 10 minutes with a soldering iron and I'm back in business...\n\n\nThe moral of the story? Always replace the cheapest part first. ie\nthe %%$#@! volt-meter, in my case.
