Can you trace the vacuum pipe from inlet manifold to the wiper motor.

If so you can renew all hoses.

Hi, this is the problem I don't any function sheets to rebuild. All hoses are broken and missed since the jouney form US to Europe. The dialer has removed all and closed the main hose with a screw.

Purchase some vacuum hoe from any retail store. Remove the screw from hose that will be youre source.

Connect hose from the screw end and locate the wiper motor,then connect other end of hose to wiper motor.

Make sure hose is not rubbing on anything.
