    Hello again
    Not really a problem but would like to have it right.
    My 76 bus has a 3 position wiper arm/switch is this normal ?
    First click up does nothing
    Second click wipers on
    Third click wipers seem maybe a little slower than previous And they do not self park
    Will be taking column apart soon to replace key barrel will check wiring as to correct colour to speeds as I read on some earlier posts .
    Any suggestions as to fixing the self park as I’d assume it will be a blue slip requirement here in the nanny state.
    Cheers Ignats
    For those that helped out with my last issue the new horn contact is ordered

    Usually Off, Normal speed, Fast. There was an option for intermittent but have not seen one?

    Hi Ignats,
    Agree with Wayne & Alpal on position 1 & 2. 3rd position should have wipers going faster.
    The 'no self park & faster speed on 3rd position' may be related.
    Cheers

    Will let you know how I get on when I get things apart
    Intermediate would be nice something to set her apart from the others

    Had just enough time to pull wiper motor before work tested on bench after lubing spindles and everything seems ok have two speeds haven’t the time to check park function yet maybe tomorrow
    Have two questions though.
    Wire colours different on motor to plug see photos and the drivers side arm has a bend in it see photos looks factory can someone confirm please as it does tend to make the two arms come together when running causing clicking but can manoeuvre so they don’t .
    Cheers Ignats

    Sounds like connected wires wrong by PO.
