Rear wiper park switch

I'm installing a MUD center console in my 1990 110. With this installation I have to remove the switch that controls the rear wiper. My plan is to install a Carling Contura xiv switch to control the wiper (off-on-(on)). My concern is the park function of the rear wiper. Is this function within the switch or is the circuit elsewhere?

Basically, can I just simply replace the switch and have the wiper still function.
Thanks
Chris

Wiper wiring requires a switch with a fairly specific design. There is a park circuit that is closed with the switch off and the running circuit that is closed with the switch on. You can't just use a normal switch. The switch must be specially setup for use with a wiper.

Thanks for the info. This is the switch I bought (different vendor). I if I'm understanding correctly, the park circuit is not is the OEM switch but elsewhere. As long as I wire the switch correctly everything should work. Correct?

John, or anyone else, do you know the part number for the rear wiper switch on Mud? I'm they only have the switch with a green indicator and I'm looking for blue (if available). I have tried to call Carling distributors and they were no help.

Any thoughts?
Chris
