Wiper intermittent fried?

After the snow, somehow my wipers were on the down(intermittent) setting and froze on the windscreen, they eventually came free but now I have no intermittent setting, but the 2 faster speeds work. Figured its the switch. But would appreciate some input.
It's a 1999 td5 dash set up.
Thanks

I would say it is the switch as they can go pretty easily. If its the same switch as in the NAS 90 then all it is is a bearing thats sandwich between two plates that have ridges.

So it's the switch and not the motor?

Hi, Tom-

I agree with Jeff that your motor should be OK. The switch is really simple, so you can also take a look at the contacts on the back, but it's probably not that either. The intermittent relay is either hosed or the contacts on the relay or socket are corroded or otherwise shorting. I'd try checking and cleaning it up first, or just replace the relay.

For less than $20 on Ebay and elsewhere, you can also swap in a Rover programmable one for $50-60 or a VW/Audi "99" relay that allows you to program/select the timing. I've done it on both of my trucks and it works good. There are also several places on the web that you can stumble on about it if you search "Defender programmable wiper" or a similar search. I also responded to a thread that Doug started a few months ago about it. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=41931
