I got one from NMP several years back, the original died after being filled with sand-blasting garnet. I probably could have opened it up and repaired it, but the body is rivetted together.

The wiring seems ridiculously complicated, from memory the switch was from Germany. I think there was some desperation involved with trying to get the original style of motor to work at two speeds and self park. If you need to use an alternaitive switch, you'll have your work cut out to mate up the wiring. There's a very useful article about them on the mokewerx site. http://www.moke.com.au/in-the-garage/el ... s-revealed

I've also found a spare preslite wiper motor on eBay and I've bought that too as I'm not sure which link in the chain is actually broken
