windscreen washer motor

Post by garyinwestoz »

My windscreen washer doesn't work
so I pulled it apart
rust and gunk in the gears

gears with cover plate

motor with black spacer

When connect motor to 12 volt supply (12v battery+jumper leads) - it runs fast for few secs and slows off rapidly - does that mean its stuffed? -

My spare one is doing the same.
