Honda Wiper Motor Question

Recommended Posts

Dave Irwin's tech article on the Honda Wiper Motor Swap/Upgrade shows a motor with three mounting bolts.  All my research on this suggests that is the rear motor as all images I can find of a front motor show a four bolt installation.  I pulled a couple of pics from Rockauto to illustrate the situation.  It looks like these motors are consistent for the '88-91 model Civics.  Can anyone confirm or clarify what I am finding?  Thanks.

I have no idea Mr Arnett but what I read says '92 and up????

The Honda Wiper Motor Upgrade Adapter Harness is $25 shipped

Using the 92' and up Honda accord wiper motor (or the 95' Civic -pre-notched shaft) in your 70' to 72' 240Z? This harness allows for the new motor to park correctly. The harness comes with the 6-pin connector that connects to the stock 6-pin connector on the firewall. It also comes with butt-connectors on the other end to connect to the Honda wiper motor wires.

Cliff,

Thanks for all the good info. Dave's article stated that he used a '91 Civic motor and that is what got me started down this path. No way a Civic motor matched his pics of a 3-bolt mount. I did a bit more surfing at Rockauto and saw that the '91 Accord motor looked liked Dave's pics. Yeah - the points you circled are the bolt holes. Do you have a link for the ready-made harness you mentioned?

This is Mr Irwins page. Wiper motor info is about mid page. Good luck!  EDIT, bottom of the page.
