Rear wiper motor upgrade/conversion possible

Postby jehazimo » Wed Mar 15, 2017 4:01 pm

:help: I have an 89 crx si that originally had the hatch wiper and motor. Original owner had accident and replaced with a hatch with no wiper. If I buy a motor and the wiper arm could I have the mechanic "drill" a hole and install? Wouldn't be original but hoping to do it without havg to buy a whole new hatch. :shrug:

Just put a glass sealant/coating on rear glass and don't worry about it...

Yes you can do that. Pull the inner trim piece off to be sure the mounting points for the motor are there.

Another thing to consider is the hatch's wire harness. If it was kept original to the car, you'll be fine. If the harness was swapped with the hatch, the wires won't be there for you to plug the motor into.
