I have had a nightmare with the washers and wipers on the 146, washer part is now A ok.
Wipers have a mind of their own, my original motor seized so I sourced a used replacement, everything was fitted but I was having a problem.
Not the usual ‘juddering’ though there was a bit of that.
The wipers just seemed to be constantly in the wrong place no matter where I positioned them.
This morning I removed the linkage from the motor then wrapped the motor spindle with masking tape (as suggested) on any control stalk position the motor was stopping in a different position every time.
Removed everything and had a delve inside, the top box of electronics looked wet, (it wasn’t) I dabbed it with clean kitchen roll.
I think I may have found the problem, part of the outer track fell apart.

for some reason the is a ] missing on the end of the image url which is probably the problem


as for the broken track just solder a bit of wire to join the two parts of the circuit board biggrin.gif
easy peasy

sorry Wayne-

You'll have to qualify that statement; do you fly? Are you a pilot?

Not a pilot, flown a hell of a lot...
I’ll tell ya, 2004/06 I managed a regional airport for at least 3 days a week, the airport was on a little island in the Atlantic off the west coast of Ireland (Inis Mor, lived there 6 years)
One evening after close of play a pilot by the name of Des was doing an after service flight, he landed at our airport and invited me for a trip round the 3 islands, over to the mainland airport and back, we used twin engined Islander planes, 10 seats including the pilot.
Obviously the plane was empty of passengers and I was in the front with a headset on.
He told me to hold onto the wheel lightly and put my feet on the pedals, I did, he then said are you ok, I was, he then said ‘fine, you’re now flying the plane’ did about 20 minutes including turns and altitude change, it was biblically amazing.
Obviously he did the landing.
A few private single engine pilots often invited me up and let me have a go.
I did quite a few rescues for the RNLI while I was over there, had many winch-wire jaunts under and in the big Sikorsky rescue choppers as well, lifted from the ocean and our boat, night and day.
