    What is the inner thickness dimension of the clip? I don't see it listed.

    Wiper motor buzzes

    Opened up an extra wiper motor that I had on the shelf to compare. Found it to also be missing the contact on the one side of the tabs. Consulted with a specialist. There is not supposed to be a contact there! This is a design feature of the relay. This tab doesn't touch when the switch is off. I bent the tab back to it's original position. Will have to wait on the test for a couple of weeks to see what else could be the cause of the humming.

    Finally got the pics onto my computer. First pic shows that the 3 copper tab all have silver contacts on the side that is pulled to the electro magnet. Second pic shows the spring side of the copper tab that doesn't have the silver colored contact. I didn't find the contact rattling around inside. The third is the tabs removed from the relay and the spring side missing the contact. The fourth pic shows the magnet side of the tabs with all three contacts.

    Wiper motor buzzes

    Ok. 1. Humming is definitely coming from the relay that is strapped to the wiper motor. 2. Couple of whacks with the hammer didi not eliminate the humming. 3. Disconnected the wire harness to the wiper motor. Removed the bolt holding the strap on the relay. Removed the two screws holding the relay cover. Inspected the internal workings of the relay and found all the connections looked secure and there was no sign of any corrosion or arcing. I did find one of the contacts was missing on the side of the tabs that touches when the switch is off. When the relay is de-energized these tabs are held in contact there by the spring on top of the relay. I slightly bent the tab with the missing contact so it would touch more firmly. Reinstalled the cover and strap on the relay. Bench test result is ....no humming! (I find out later from a reliable source that I shouldn't have bent this tab.) While I have this disassembled should I put on a new silver contact? Thought I read in the forum that they are silver and not regular electrical solder. Was there ever a contact? Thanks Namerow for your help!

    The motor is not attached to anything. Just had it sitting on the cowl. 1/1971 240Z if it helps.

    Working on the wipers. Have the motor and assembly out of the cowl. Cleaned up the harness connectors when I put a new harness grommet on. Reconnected the harness to see if it still worked. Wiper motor worked perfectly two times. The third time the motor started humming loudly in the off position on the switch while the ignition key is in the ACC or On positions. Ideas?

    1971 Bumper bolts

    Thanks for the tips on finding some bolts for my 71 bumpers. After looking around different sites and not seeing bolts for sale except on ebay, I was thinking about hardware stores but I guess I needed other Z people to validate my idea. Thanks again.
