Replacing the Wiper Motor in a car solves a number of problems related to the operation of the windshield wipers:

  • Improper return of wipers to the home position: A damaged motor does not return the wipers to the home position after turning off, which can obstruct the view or damage the brushes. Replacing the motor ensures that the wipers correctly return to the home position.
  • Problems with automatic rain sensors: In cars with rain sensors, a faulty motor disrupts the operation of the automatic wiper mode. A new motor helps restore synchronization with the rain sensors for the automatic operation of the wipers.
  • Noise and squeaking during wiper operation: Worn motors can cause excessive noise or squeaking during operation, which interferes with driving comfort. A new motor usually operates more quietly, eliminating unpleasant sounds.
  • Increased electricity consumption: Old or inefficient motors may consume more electricity. A new motor is generally more efficient and consumes less energy, positively affecting the overall energy efficiency of the car.
  • Non-working wipers: A faulty wiper motor leads to a complete failure or intermittent malfunctions in the operation of the wipers. Replacing the motor ensures stable and reliable operation of the wipers, which is extremely important for driving in bad weather.
  • Enhanced driving safety: Properly functioning wipers are critically important for ensuring good visibility during rain, snow, or other precipitation. Replacing the wiper motor improves the system's operation, increasing driving safety in challenging weather conditions.
  • Problems with adjusting wiper speeds: A worn motor has problems maintaining various operating speeds, affecting the effectiveness of windshield cleaning. A new motor allows for the correct use of different wiper speed modes, improving visibility in various weather conditions.

Replacing the wiper motor improves visibility and driving comfort and is an important aspect of safety, especially in adverse weather conditions.
