...but the car has other ideas.
I have lived for over 12 years with the wipers nor working properly, they would not self park. To stop them you had to pull the lever down at the right moment to get them at the bottom of the screen. A few months ago I finally decided to get a new wiper motor. I had read about the parking bit that breaks but they were getting a bit weak anyway and decided to do it right. The shiny new Landrover 110 wiper motor had arrived a while back and as it was a nice day I set to. Having removed all the battery bits and the motor strap I noticed that one wire on the connector was broken (the green one). Thinking this was the cause of the parking problem I repaired it, put the battery back and, hey presto, all working well again, parking exactly right. Then went on to a few jobs on the other cars which obviously upset the 7. Went back to move the 7 and close it up and played with the working wipers - and now they will not stop! They are still when the car is started, work with the 2 speeds on the lever but will not stop until the engine is switched off. Even on flick wipe they work but never stop until the ignition is switched off.
Any ideas for an easy resolution gratefully received. Should I fit the new motor (which seem to be a struggle to get the old one out) or is it a coincidental fault in the switch?
