Hi all. At risk of becoming a persistent poster here I know!
Just wondering whether anyone knows what gear is needed in the wiper motor.  The one with the car had a 130 degree gear but is shot, and can only seem to find 110 degree from mini suppliers to fit the new mini motor I have! Has anyone used the 110 with success?  Cheers as always

It may not help but land rover defenders have the same wiper assembly not sure of the angle though.
I've used standard mini wiper set up with no major problems.

It's a radical change I know but I stopped using the rack and pinion type wiper mechanism for the very reasons you outline.

I fitted one if the lever and rod type set ups where you can adjust the sweep of the arm by altering the length of the operating  lever/crank.

Hi John,

Which donor did you use for the wiper mechanism?

Regards,

Tim

You can change the swept angle on permanent magnet motors by changing the position of the crank pin, or by swapping the large nylon gearwheel or by fitting larger wheel boxes (to reduce the angle). The last method also applies to wire wound motors.

Thanks for the advice. Have managed to get my hands on a land rover one which was 120 degrees, so will give this a try. Cheers

I can't remember exactly which set up I used but Ford fiesta rings a bell.
