Whenever you are traveling at low visibility conditions, such as when it is raining, your vehicle must be equipped with high-quality wipers. The wipers work with two mechanical technologies. First is the combination electric motor and worm gear reduction that provides power to the wipers. Second is the neat linkage that converts the rotational output of the motor into the back-and-forth motion of the wipers. A lot of force is needed to accelerate the wiper blades, back and forth across the windshield. This force is produced when a worm gear is used on the output of a small electric motor. Inside the motor is an electronic circuit that senses when the wipers are at a down position. The circuit sustains power to the wipers until they rest at the bottom of the windshield. Consequently, the power is cut to the motor. The same circuit parks the wipers between wipes while on the intermittent setting.
Your Rugged Ridge Wiper Motor Cover is an important protecting element for your wiper motor. Contaminants like water, salt, and windshield washer solution are capable of entering and damaging the wiper motor assembly through pinholes on the exterior of the cover that are used during the molding process. In some vehicles, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case can overheat. Malfunctioning of switches often occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the down position. The said malfunctioning can result to loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Contaminants would also result to unintended wiper motor operation.
Poor functioning wipers can lead to a crash since visibility often depends on them, especially when rain and snow are on their way to obstruct your vision during the trip.
