Wiper motor cable routing

I failed to photograph the way the wiper motor cable gets routed and I canít recall. I remember folds and a clip somewhere in the cowl gasket. Iíve also been searching previous posts but that has only yielded a complex about grounding. Anybody got an image of how it was routed in the 80ís?

Thanks Rob. That routing is simpler than I remembered on my 83í. Iím thinking there may have been a change in there as my wiper motor wires are bonded as 4 wire ribbon without the extra covering.

As long as you are there, run a ground wire to the motor mounts.

Normally they ground through the hinges but the hinges seem to rust faster when current is running through them leading to poor grounds and stuck windshields.
It doesn't take much to bend the hinges and then your seal won't.

Well the hole was missing from my repli-tub. So much for the fixed version having all the holes cut for me. Course I failed to notice it was missing when I was fixing the other stuff. Fortunately I still have that bit of the old tub still in the garage to get the dimensions. I lack the skills/tools to roll the edge to prevent wire chafing, so I fit a round grommet in the oval hole. Die grinder got away from me a bit. Also drilled and tapped for a ground strap.

Youíre right, the CJ wires are a bonded 4-wire ribbon. I am running a YJ windshield frame with YJ wiper linkage and YJ wiper motor. The wires run in the same location however. Hate it when the angle grinder walks away like that. Nothing a little Touch up paint canít fix though

My Repli-Tub didn't have the elongated hole either. I just duplicated the dimensions from the original and made it the same size on the new tub. And no, I couldn't roll the edges either so we just used a file and a de-burring tool to smooth the edge. Thick paint took care of the rest.
