    Wiper motor moving when in use

    Hi
    I've got the 3 wiper system on my AK. I've fitted it all as per instructions and tested it without the wipers attached - all runs fine.
    When I then add the wipers and test, I can see the motor is being pulled back of forth be the action of the worm drive.
    Motor is secured tight to the bracket and wheel boxes are tightened up as much as I can.
    Is this normal for the motor to be pulled like this?

    Thanks

    Pete

    it should be solid in position. I had a similar issue when I first fitted mine. Make sure the isolating rubber pad is seated properly and not fouling the clamps.

    Get plenty of lubrication on all the moving parts and loads of grease up the tube too. Resistance in the system will cause the motor to move.

    And wet the screen. Or friction will want to pull the set up about.

    There should be a diamond pad under the motor which fits into the u bracket, these should stop it moving. Not much else can go wrong really?
