Default First take off wiper arms!

With the motor loose from the car, electrical disconnected... the cable should pull out of the tube.. probably dried grease creating drag?

Just rebuilt my motor with new brushes and cleaned all - replaced Park switch and it all works fine.. no rain in So Cal in the summer!

Motor cover has to be taken off to get to actual cable attaching points inside the motor.

If only only factory manuals had David's linguistic analytical and photographic skills.

So far, the wiper assembly in my car work just fine. Little use, I suppose helps!!

Hmm, went to market yesterday. Darkish parking garage. No boot light! Concern and fix? Or, why, just introduce another issue potential???

And, oddly, the speedo seemed to be closer??? Read 30 MPH. Sensed that is about right. Conversion had caused it to read 49 at a real 25!

Oh, the mystery of Jaguars, compounded by lumping. But, it sure does purrrr.
