Pre-86 wiper motor conversion

For those who want to use a new model wiper motor (easily available) on pre March 86 Spider. Here is what I've done...

The pre-86 wiper motor has 4 wires instead of five on the new one.

The 5th wire on the new model is a ground. If you want to use a newer model, here is the color code:

PRE-86 NEWER

Red..........Gray
Green.......Blue
Brown.......Blue/white
Black........Blue/black

You don't need to use the black wire of the newer model if your motor mount has good ground contact. Personally I've connected the black separately on the chassis.

If you need to fix your wiper motor you can look my restoration thread:
