So..over the long weekend I decided to take care of a few issues with the car. The wiper motor would not turn on at all from the switch. First thing I checked was that all the fuses are ok, and that the plug was attached. Another thing I need to check is if its getting power to the plug itself. (A future project is to replace the 50 year old wiring.) I decided to remove the cowl cover and look at the motor and wiper arms. I found the motor had this black plastic cover over it (I'm assuming its a weather-shield?) but when i touched that shield, it just disintegrated in my hands. I looked at CJPP, NPD, Classic Industries, and even RockAuto. Nobody carries that cover? Does anybody know where I can find one? I'm probably going to replace the motor in the future but I would like to protect the existing one for now.
