PostSubject: Can I use a later (70's) wiper motor in a 69 bug?   Thu Jun 04, 2015 10:51 pm

I am currently waiting to find out if my burnt out 69 wiper motor can be reconditioned, but just wondered if it can't, can I fit a later motor, assembly, arms etc as they are a lot easier to find? 69 motors seem to be like rocking horse dung!! What modifications would it need if any? I just want to get some wipers on before end of June cheers all.

'72 and later motors used a column mounted stalk switch and the motor wiring isn't compatible with the dash switch. It can be modified to work but it does add some complexity.

At least you have a Plan "B" if he does get a later motor.
