Vitesse 2 speed wiper conversion


Recommended Posts

I have just done the 2 speed conversion to the single speed Lucas DR3a wiper motor as found in our cars.
Relatively simple if you can follow a wiring diagram and solder. I used a 10 ohm 25 watt power resistor.
And made a wee bracket using the windings screws to locate it.


And it runs through a Vitesse headlight switch with the wiper knob giving fast speed first pull the slow speed second pull.
Current draw fast=1.7amps, slow=2.2 amps.
As the instructions say be careful when connecting it up to the switch.
