PostSubject: Wiper Faliure and replacement   Wed Aug 22, 2007 10:27 pm

Hello to all from the Land of the long white cloud (NZ).
The passenger side wiper on my 90 Supercustom has just packed up due to completly stripping the teeth. It will need to be replaced, and without really haveing a look, I am assuming that the dash will have to be removed to get to it. Has anyone had to do this, and how long should I allow, and where are the main bolts located to remove the dash if required.

Thanks

Hey How are you doing... I hope you dont mind me moving this to mechanical...

Good to see some members from further afield.. sunny

I havent looked at the wipers personally but am confident someone will answer your query.

Hope to see you here regularly.. Wink

I'm adding my question here as it seems appropriate.

I'm trying to replace the wiper pivots on one of my vans. I've got the dash out and still I don't have access. The fan & blower assembly's still in the way and it looks like I may have to start taking the front of the van apart to get to these fixings.

Before starting this I feel someone must know a better way? This is tons of work!

Let me know if you've done this and have a cunning plan or if I've just got to slog away until there's nothing left of the front of the van?

Thanks =)

Sadly loads of stuff to come out first, and depending on model you may have to remove the cross brace.

An well, at least I asked!

The fan & blower assy look like they need to come out but I'm not sure where all the fixings to do this are. It looks like some are from outside the van at the front. Is this so?

If it is a bonnet version then maybe, otherwise all from inside.

Our customers are chilled people but I don't think they'd go for any of that Wink
