I have been chasing brushes for a two speed MINI wiper this is the round one with three legs.
I have contacted many places in Aus and UK even sent photos away with no results.
Next I e-mail or visited Mini suppliers with no results.
Then tried to modify a brush set for the newer round wiper with the mounting clamp No success.
Finally I was doing a small job for an Auto Elec and just happened to have it with me
He looked and replied " piece of cake" and pulled three out of a box and gave them to me no charge. Also told me they are common and readily available where ever Auto elec supplies are sold.
Moral of this story do the obvious first!!!!!! Red Sedan Blue Sedan Yellow Sedan

last time a friend was doing these conversions for a Mini he used a sparky, we hadn't heard of it being done before and we surmised it could be done we then disassembled a couple to see the difference.
put in a round single speed wiper motor and get back a reco 2 speed wiper motor.
couldnt get enough for the mini fellas
