Greetings

I took the wiper motor out of my 280z to cleanup the linkage and service the motor. The protective bag ripped on me in a few places plus it is so brittle it looks like it will far apart soon.

I have searched (sorry if I missed it) and as we know there are several posts dealing with the motor but could not find anything on bag replacement options.

 

I was thinking maybe an inter tube or even a hot water bottle? My buddy suggested a turkey cooking bag doubled up and sealed with hot glue, I know that sounds weird but might be a good option.

 

Your suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Zlost

Use the old bag as a template and buy a cheap impulse sealer. Should be a fairly straightforward process to re-create the factory bag.

Hard part will be finding matching plastic, if you want it to be a match for the OEM.

Thanks Tim, I am not concerned with OEM at this point, I just need something that will work.

I could have sworn i saw the other day a Z parts website that had these listed. Not sure if they had any in stock but check around. I even revisited the ones i normally check and couldn't find it. Maybe i'm goin' crazy.

Thanks Grannyknot, I checked them out and it is 34 bucks for a used one shipped. If I wanted to stay OEM yeah it's ok deal but I don't and that's too much for a used one.

I ordered a rubber water bottle that should be here Tuesday, I will upload a picture if it works.

 

Cheers

Great idea, just spray it black before you install the cowl.

Water bottle did not work,  too thick and not long enough, inner-tube is next.
