    My wiper motor was not available from anyone as it has long since ceased production.
    On another site learnt of Robson and Francis and sent it off to them. They sent me picture of the interior.

    It's not a cheap option :Sad:, but if you have an old van, then it may be your only choice if a spare is not available (like a 1992 LHD Hymer!).
    They also do rewinds of starter motors, alternators etc.

    Hope this helps someone

    Cheers

    Rusty wiper motor with rusty bearings ....
