Does anyone know where I can source a working wiper motor, at a reasonable price, for my MK3 please? I can get one for a decent price from South Africa but its a bit of a faff getting it here. Alternatively can anyone tell me whether the left and right hand drive versions use the same wiper motors? Im doubting it but I may be lucky! :) If so I could look around Spain for one.

From the parts diagrams, left and right hand drive cars have different wiper motor part numbers.

 

The following is worth a read:

43. New C5 (X7) front wipers not working properly.

Before replacing one of the 2 wiper motors, it may be possible to do a fix to the motor wiring pins - see this topic from c5vtr http://www.citroen-o...x7-wiper-motor/

Hi Paul thanks for your reply. I dont think it is the pins on mine as there is no sign of any water ingress. I actually think mine could be a mechanical issue as when I have the wipers on the shaft on the LH wiper motor tries to turn but can only move about a millimetre in either direction. Still I will see if I can take the circuit board off the mounting lugs and make absolutely sure - I have fat fingers so it may end badly! :)
