The windscreen wiper motor powers your vehicle’s washing and wiping system. Located on the firewall of the engine compartment, this motor is connected to the wipers outside and the wiper switch on your steering column. Not only are you required by law to have operable windscreen wipers, they are a critical safety component of your vehicle. Therefore, having a properly working wiper motor is essential so you have a clean, dry windscreen and can clearly see what’s in front of your vehicle in all kinds of weather. If your wiper motor is starting to fail, your wipers may not turn on or off properly, may operate at only one speed, and may move too slowly even at that speed.
