No, they are new blades. They're the ones I retrofitted and talked about earlier in the post.this might be an obvious question, but are your blades sticky or worn?
Good suggestion. I'll do some research on this this week and let you know.It could just be that the brushes are worn. Look up an electrical motor rebuilder in the phone book. I had a blower motor for climate control in a Land Cruiser rebuilt for $70. Worked like new.
Thanks for hunting it down to under $300. that's some consolation. But I think that a crucial piece of the puzzle was mentioned in my previous post: the wipers are running slow. They still work, just not as strong.
Could be that the motor is not getting a full 12v? Bad ground?
Any idea how to test for that? Or where? I have a volt meter.
Damned if I know how it works.
