Lotus Elan

Windscreen Wiper Motor

Can anyone tell me where Lotus sourced the plus 2 wiper motor from?
I dropped the cover and cracked the magnets! :( Surely there must be a cheap source of secondhand ones about.

The wiper motor is a Lucus motor and was used on many English cars such as Triumph and MG.

I have one listed on EBAY at the present time if you are interested.

Good luck.

Hi Jack,
I sourced mine from an Austin Allegro but had to swop the geared wheel to ensure the wiper throw was correct.
