Good morning all,
Has anyone had to rebuild or replace the windshield wiper dashboard
switch behind their dash on a '63 Galaxie Fastback?
I was in Ocean City this past weekend (where it rained) when I found
out my wipers are dead. I got up under the dash, and found that the
switch consists of a dash-mounted housing with 4 "fingers" set at 0,
90, 270, and 360 degrees, a black switching mechanism, and the wiring
harness, which slides onto the 4 aforementioned fingers.
The switching mechanism seems to be the problem - it looks like it's
fallen apart, but I can't tell how it was built originally. There are
four parts that I found - a black plastic swivel piece, a center post
which the black piece rotates on, a TINY spring, and a circular metal
pressure plate. I don't know how it all fits back together. I can
also post pics if need be.
Has anyone had to rebuild one of these, or replace one? I did a quick
look through Mac's and Dearborn and couldn't find a replacement (know
where I could find one?), so any help or advice would be greatly
