wiper motor replacement

 

What is a wiper motor and how it works?

The wiper motor drives the wiper arms to move through the glass to clean the water and debris with the wiper blades. The connection to the arms is direct or via a wiper link.

The wiper motor is a small but powerful electric motor that is activated by the controller, either using the column mounted wiper stem or by a separate switch. Some vehicles are equipped with rain detection devices that will automatically start the wiper motor for the driver.

Power is supplied to the wiper motor through a fuse and relay, depending on the position of the switch, can produce intermittent wipes, standard speed wipes, or quick wipes depending on the requirements of the conditions.

When should I consider replacing the wiper motor?

Since the wiper is a vital piece of vehicle safety equipment and a legal requirement, as soon as any issues arise get it fixed soon as possible. Don't drive with faulty windscreen wiper components, even on a dry sunny day, as conditions can change anytime and can cause a serious trouble.


How common is the replacement of a wiper motor?

Since the motor is used frequently, wear will eventually cause a malfunction, just like any other electric motor. Therefore, it is not uncommon for an engine to be replaced one or more times during the life of the vehicle, depending on the conditions.
