In cases where pedal operation of Foot Operated Windshield Washer, when used in conjunction with Electric Windshield Wiper, will not start wiper action and/or the interval between time water arrives the following correction should be made.

SWITCH SLIDER - ELECTRIC MOTOR

Obtain Switch Slider Unit #5097911 which consists of a new nylon slider, clip and instruction sheet.  The new slider is more rigid and reduces the travel lost due to flexibility of the old type slider.

The instructions for slide replacement are as follows:

FOOT OPERATED PUMP

The wiper motor should then turn on within the last quarter of its full travel and should turn off upon release of pump plunger button.
