“Assemble and fit the wiper linkage mechanism to the firewall.”
- 30A – Firewall
- 30B – Right Pivot
- 30C – Left Pivot
- 30D – Wiper Linkage
- 30E – Wiper Transmission Arm
Push the pin on the left end of the Wiper Linkage (the end closer to the ‘bends’) into this top hole of the Left Pivot (the one with two holes).
The pin on the Left Pivot should face away from the Wiper Linkage:
Push the pin on the right end of the Wiper Linkage (the end farther from the ‘bends’) into the hole of the Right Pivot as shown:
The pin on the Right Pivot should also face away from the Wiper Linkage:
Push the pin on one end of the Wiper Transmission Arm into the lower hole of the Left Pivot from the opposite side as the Wiper Linkage, as shown:
Push the pins of both the Left Pivot and Right Pivot into these holes of the Firewall.
The free end of the Wiper Transmission Arm is not attached to anything yet, so I recommend not pushing these pivots all the way in just yet. We will need to rotate them a little when we connect the arm in a later phase:
I thought a view from the top might help here as well:
While that step finishes up this issue, I wanted to show off the superb detail of this Firewall. These little printed labels are amazing!
Did you notice there were absolutely no screws supplied or used in this issue? That is unusual for this model and reminded me of my Aston Martin DB5 build. The Firewall is metal, but the other parts are plastic.
Running Total of screws used so far: 191
Phase 31 – Body: Ignition Relay/Coil, Firewall Hose, Wiring Harness, Headlight Relay
