Wiper Motor Mounting

PostPost by: Hugh2654 » Sat Nov 29, 2014 6:04 pm

Hi Guys,
My Plus 2 has a steel plate which the wiper motor is mounted onto. The plate is bolted to the body with the nuts being undone in the passenger foot well. It is rusted beyond repair. Does anyone know where to source a replacement.

Very easy to make this yourself with an angle grinder mild steel and a drill.

My early plus two uses a steel pressing, may-be later cars have a flat steel plate that would be simple to replace?
Cheers, Brian

Hi Brian,
That's the same type of plate on my car. Apparently they are nor available so I will have to just have to make a flat plate instead. Bit of a shame because I was hoping to keep it as original as possible.
Thanks
