Replace windshield wiper motors

Our windshield wipers seem to be not operating well.

Does anyone have any experience with replacing the motors? How do I go about finding the right motors and installing them?

To remove motors, open engine cover, disconnect wiper arm assembly from motors, disconnect electrical connections to motors, then unbolt and remove motors.

Mill Supply should have the motors you need but double check with the model number on your motors. Others in the Classic motorhome forum may have model numbers.

If you haven't done the variable speed, using one switch to control both wipers modification, it's a great modification to do.

There is a Classic motorhome sticky and great people in that section of the forums for better access to other members with Classic motorhomes.

Cheers

You may also find them at a local parts store like NAPA.
