Well funny that my wipers are rubbish too. The arms in my old XF ute popped off so I just got another set from the wreckers. Fine for an XF plenty of them around....

In the XH2 though its a pain....I haven't gone as far as taking the wiper assembly out but I can tell something is buggered in there. The motor whines likes cow so I guess its probably dying - hope not....A-Bone what did you pay for a wiper motor last time you replaced it? I'm interested in seeing how you solve this because the wipers in my XH2 are rubbish too and would like to do something about them. They just slosh water around and thats with new blades! I was of the impression that XH2 had EL wiring because it has the variable intermmitant wiper switch.

A-Bone - have a look at snap0694's docs, he has written a heap about changing BCM's in X series utes using EF and EL BCM's. Its worth a read and will show you how to wire up.

Thanks XHII V8S

I got the whole assembly from a wreckers out of an XF.

The first problems was the wipers "sloshing" as you said so i got the most expensive blades i could find, they were a bit slimmer than the original ones so i bent the tiny arms that hold it in and they wipe the water fine.

The arms still stop about a quarter up when using the 1st setting. ill attach a pic of where they stop.

Then the left arm fell off the bearing point and i only had a right wiper as that's the one that runs from the motor and the left one just runs off the right one

When i attached the wiper motor i got from the wreckers it was the same so i kept my one thinking it would be better as it was slightly newer.

So basically i have wipers that work ok. they do the job how ever they are very slow in the first setting and make that painfully annoying squeaking noise and i want ones that don't sit a third of the way up my windscreen.

Ill have a look at snap0694's docs.

and hopefully solve this problem and post a doco.

Cheers :wink:
