    Dax windscreen motor position

    Would be interested to hear or see pictures of how/ where you have mounted the windscreen wiper motor in your Dax

    Thanks,
    Paul

    I found a nice solid bit of right angle bracket and bolted it to the scuttle hoop, then fitted the motor to the bracket





    Dont forget a bit of rubber behind the motor to stop it rattling around



    regards

    Mine is very similar to Dave's.
    just mounted to the scuttle tube with a small triangular bracket.

    I did much the same. Passenger side scuttle hoop fixed with a couple of exhaust clamps. Wiggle everything around to get the optimum position and minimise curves in the drive cable.

    Thanks for the info guys. Whilst searching the web for other Dax builds came across this small footprint heater http://www.t7design.co.uk/index.php/...eater-12v.html. I am planning to fit just in front of the passenger side scuttle tube which will keep it clear of the passengers feet
