Chaps

I have a poor sweep on the wipers, how do I tell if I have the correct wiper motor drive Gear for an SE5 ? or does someone have one that is correct, that I can borrow/buy to eliminate ?

cheers

David

If you take off the cover on the wiper motor, the number of degrees is stamped into the drive gear. An Se6a, for example has a 130deg gear. If yours turns out to be wrong, then replacement gears are available from SVC, for example. All you need now, is to know what yours is, and what it should be :) If yours turns out to be right, then it could be your wheelboxes are wrong?

I think they’re 130 across the board.

I wouldn’t put much weight on an eBay listing...

It's 120 degree on my Coupe which has the same windscreen as an SE5. Best to check what is already fitted.

Yep, it has a 120 degree, so going to assume that is going to be correct, cleaned motor and regreased etc, seems a lot better :D
ordered park switch, happy days.
