Default Electric Windshield Wiper Install

Rockin' Kev knows that I am in the process of installing the electric windshield wiper motor in place of my vacuum unit. He sent me this tip that probably should be picked up and put in the TRL, JohnG. Anyone else about to go through this installation needs to know what Kev said. Here it is.

"Top tip for fitting the wiper motor kit in, wrap duck tape around the old spindle that has the wire cables on so they don't fall out, and when installing the wiper motor switch in the same place as the original make sure you leave a gap behind the white toggle switch to the dash, as the two speed wiper switch rotates in and out as you turn it, unlike the original you just turn the knob and the wipers get faster.

Remember this as loads of people don't and then they think the switch is broke.
