Corvette Wiper Motor Rebuild, Restoration

Corvette Wiper Motor Restoration Services 

Thank you for checking out our wiper motor services. You have come to the right place! Corvette windshield wiper motor restoration is right up our alley. When we receive your windshield wiper motor, it is restored right in our shop. We do not exchange it or send it elsewhere to have the service performed. This is a good question to ask if you’re considering other restorers!

We have decades of experience! For almost 30 years Corvette Specialties of MD West has offered the three levels of restoration described below. We published these descriptions in our literature and on our web site soon after. If you look at other sites offering wiper motor restoration, their wording and descriptions are often the same as ours, sometimes word for word. We consider it flattery that others have used our descriptions and offer the same service variations, but we assure you they don’t offer the same quality we do!

See below for more information and general pricing for our Wiper Motor Restoration Services by year:

Restored 63-67 Corvette Wiper Motors

This is what you do NOT want in a “restored” wiper motor: 

The wiper motor below was received from a customer who sent his original 1957 #5047991 wiper motor to another rebuilder. He received a different motor with an incorrect main case that has a weep hole like 5044266 and 5044479 1958-1962 motors. Bright zinc plating was used on the front cover and end cap. Incorrect screws were used in the end cap (they should be rivets). Even the metal actuator clip was installed incorrectly. It is unfortunate that some owners receive their motor from other rebuilders with bright zinc plated parts on an aluminum case that appears sandblasted. Pictures do not show how improperly restored these motors really are! GM never produced wiper motors that look like this. Many different sources are available for Corvette Wiper Motor Restoration. Corvette Specialties of MD West is your Restoration Leader. Send your wiper motor to us and have it restored properly!

This is what happens when the do-it-yourself guy attempts to tape off openings and glass bead a wiper motor to “clean it up”. Must be fully disassembled to restore the motor.

WHEN SENDING PARTS, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE OUR RESTORATION ORDER FORM.

IMPORTANT PACKING & SHIPPING NOTES: When shipping gauges and other items for restoration, please wrap the items securely! We suggest wrapping each item in bubble wrap individually and cushioning the wrapped bundles within the box with more packaging. When shipping open-face gauges, protect the gauge face by taping the gauge face-down to a piece of cardboard and wrap with bubble wrap. Note that some pointer bases may stick up beyond the edge of the face so the cardboard may need to have a small hole to accommodate it. Be sure to fill the package completely with cushioning material, especially the corners, as any movement within the box can cause damage. We advise against using air-filled bags as they allow too much movement within the package. Insure your items for a replacement value you feel comfortable with. Please note that even if you insure your items, if the carrier determines the package was not packed properly they may dispute your damage claim.
