Hoping somebody can help me.
My wiper/ washer assembly has packed up, so decided it was time for an overhaul.
How do you remove / replace the brown wire which is connected to the operating stalk.
Having removed the black plastic "switch" at the end of the stalk, I can see a circlip washer, which perhaps holds a  shaft in place. At the moment I'm reluctant to remove this or use any force in trying to separate the two halves of the stalk, even assuming this is possible and necessary.
Many thanks
Tim

I guess you have an S2/3 Fulvia. First, make sure that the wiper motor turns OK by connecting a 12 v source  (battery charger) to it. Second, you should remove the two plastic surrounds around the steering column, then undo the slotted nut and you can extract the switch assembly (watch out for the ground lead which may have to be cut and reconnected later with two terminal connnectors). You can check it on the bench: its contacts can be dirty or broken. Many, many years ago (in the 80s I think to recall) the LMC mag run articles on how to check the operation of the light and wipers switches. Andrea.

Many thanks Andrea - Does anybody have a copy of the articles to which Andrea refers? Would be happy to reimburse expenses for printing and postage.

I might have them somewhere in my archives, but I would have thought that the LMC librarian should be able to supply them. If you get stuck, I will try to help. It was a couple of articles and I  remember that one would need a good AVO meter to check the correct operation of all switch positions on the bench. Andrea
