The rear wiper on my Windstar failed, thinking it was the motor, I purchased
a rebuilt one, installed it and had the motor working for 5 mins, then the
motor appeared to stop. I took the motor off, went to a electic shop who
tested the motor, said it appeared to be working when they applied power,
said that it was an intermittant type motor.
I wasn't sure, and I have not reinstalled the motor or gone further with it,
but his comment about the intermittant motor had me confused as I didn't
think my 96 had intermittant rear wiper.
Can someone veryify if there there were 2 model of motors for this year or
did I just get the wrong one?
And if my motor stopped working, is this one imcompatible? Or could it be a
wiring issue? I have checked fuses and they appear ok, I do notice the rear
washer will not work either, so I assume they are on the same switch??
