    Default Wiper motor

    My 2CV wiper motor burned out when one wiper got stuck.
    Does anybody have a used one or new?

    An AC motor re-winder. And larger motors at that.

    I completely agree with investigating a motor re-winder , however a company that deals in Dc or brush motors would be a better choice.
    And old timer auto electrician may be a lead to follow.

    Or even mix master and food machinery repairer.

    Hi
    I thought that the wipers were driven by the speedo cable. Does your speedo work ?

    According to Wikipedia
    On the earlier CitroŽn 2CV, the windscreen wipers were powered by a purely mechanical system, a cable connected to the transmission; to reduce cost, this cable also powered the speedometer. The wipers' speed was therefore variable with car speed. When the car was waiting at an intersection, the wipers were not powered, but a handle under the speedometer allowed the driver to power them by hand.[citation needed]

    Thanks all. I did go to a specialist electrician but he told me because the wiring was black' it could not be re-wired.
    There was smoke coming out the wiper motor.
    I have ordered a new motor from Der Fransoze.
    Thanks again.

    Hi Herman,
    Do you still have the dead one? I'd like to have a go at reconditioning it. Happy to pay postage.
    Cheers,
    Andrew

    The earlier cars, Jaahn. Up through '63.
