hi, my rear wiper seized, causing one of the carbon brushes in the dc motor to burn out.

Any ideas where I can buy a couple of replacements ?

thx, jim.

thanks reply.

I found a pair of bushings from a drill, very malleable... snipped to size, and now back to life.

torque drill to unseize the drive shaft, reassembled.... just need to find that old wiper blade now 😋

I got a rear wiper blade from Opie Oils - Just looked now and they no longer list a rear wiper :(

If you can track down a part number, try Amazon or Ebay?

Blade or wiper arm? 16 inch michelin wiper blades ( hybrid type) work well. Nice job with the carbon brushes👍

Good for you! Amazing that the windings weren't shorted.
