Windshield wiper motor on '35 sedan

Recommended Posts

Here's a question that can probably only be answered by those who have "been there, done that".  How do you remove the wiper motors on a '35 sedan?

 

I have no problem getting the control knobs and the nut on the outside that holds the main shaft (and thus the whole motor) off, but I just can't figure out a way to wiggle the motor so that either the control shafts or the main shaft go far enough to allow motor removal. I have the glove box out,  so that is not in the way.

 

The most obvious answer to me is that the whole dash has to be either removed or at least loosened enough to move the motors.  This is not something that I'm thrilled about. The shop manual is, of course, silent on this issue.  Who has been successful?

 

Thanks. Tom

Think you start by removing the front fenders, take the radiator out and then get a real answer from someone that knows what to do Tom.  It would appear that not a lot of effort was expended by the engineering department in regard to serviceability.  The good news is they probably have rain-x at Walmart and let's hope that the rain in Corsicana was all you'll see this year.
