I had my Nissan Sentra SE-R with one wiper back in 1998. it was the trend back then . At the time i was looking at pulling the motor off a Isuzu impulse of the 80's because that was the only car that i knew that it had one wind shield wiper from the factory.

Hey swift1.0 take let's say 4-5 more pictures of the windshield super in different positions. Far Left, middle, and far right

Let's try this once more. A couple of days ago I asked if you can show the different windshield wiper positions just to see if I sweeps across the whole entire windshield. Meaning you already showed the home position which was far right now let's see how far left the wiper goes. Reason why I ask is hince since you already done this mod it will give me/others a visual of the wiper on both ends to decide if whether or not this mod is to the individuals liking. Some wipers miss just don't sweep fully across. That's the whole reason why I wanting more pics.

the european FIAT UNO /CITROEN AX have from factory a wiper motor that runs the entire windshield from side to side, i i have already posted a sample photo of a FIAT UNO motor,
and yes it works from side to side
hers a pic of a FIAT UNO, you can see the dust on the mirror were the wiper doesn´t clean....................
it´s not worth so much trouble to upload pics and mounting a thing on the car if it´s useless, and yes the wiper it´s a 100% effective and, it works perfectly. i just used something that has been proven to work on other cars, like FIAT, and adapted it on my swift :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
and i forgot to take pics when i was doing it, my mistake, because it was dark ........ :oops: :oops: :? :?

So the fiat car is the same as swift car windshield dimensions? The new wiper motor from the fiat gets installed in the location as the oem on my geo metro? Fiat compared to swifts, geo metros are universal when it comes to this mod? I just don't want this mod to be floppy and ineffective wiping the windshield. Sorry for being stubborn I guess or just relentless about. Thanks for the response on this mod on pointing people in direction that makes it easy from finish to end

i´m glad to help on something i just discovered myself and gave me and a friend of mine, lots of work
take a look at my pics
now open the hood on your car , and remove the grill in the glass and wiper arms, compare the oem swift wiper motor with the fiat motor shown above on the pics
i just installed the FIAT on the swift firewall, and in the place were the center clip holds the grill, the clip hole needs to be enlarged, look carefully at my pics :D :D :D :D :D
