I've just got hold of the wiper motor and amabout to start fitting it as in Rogue's instructions (great work there mate!)

Has anyone got a cheat-sheet on which wire does what or do I do it the good old fashioned way and nut it out?   :)

Cheers,

Garry

Mine were all fine but then my van is quite a late model and hasn't had a lot of use in the past 15 years.  ;)

is the HQ-WB wiper motor the standard unit on the bedfords, or is mine a modified unit?

Either way, mine runs the HQ-WB wiper motor..

A later model ford would be the go tho ;)

All I did was undo the bolt on the motor tunnel/firewall and the big ringnuts on the wipers themselves. Took a bit of a tap with a soft hammer on the wiper stems to loosen the assembly and out it came.

The wiring still has me stumped though and I can't get the new motor going - no movement at all. It's got me wondering if I've bought an ebay dodgy.
