Anyone ever see the wiper motor do this before?

Anyone ever see the wiper motor do this before?

Post by arse_sidewards »

So I pulled apart my non-working wiper motor to re-grease it when replacing the already burned out motor (turns out the switch was also F-ed up and in retrospect I should have just bout a $120 reman) and I found that all the grease had turned to something thicker than pumkin pie but thinner than skippy peanut butter. I took the heat gun to the grease from the '97 gearbox that donated the motor and it liquefied so the heat wasn't what done it.

Anyone seen this before?

Yeah, I've heard of it and been told that's why the windows in these cars slows down. I need to pull all the windows, clean the tracks in the regulator, regrease, and reinstall the windows.
