    dust seal between wiper motor and firewall?

    Hi, anyone know where I can get replacement foam piece that is in between the firewall and the wiper motor? I think it is (was) some sort of dust barrier or something. When I took out my wiper motor, it crumbled. has anyone made their own? Thx, Greg

    Making your own shouldn't be a problem, just choose the right material.

    You can try RockAuto to see if they carry the gasket.
    The greatest gift you have to give to the world is that of your own self~transformation.

    That stuff is like a wetsuit material for surfers and divers, craft shop, foam factory, hardware stores.. Got any diving shops close by? I'll install my ASA program and check for a part number.

    Ok, the above image shows the parts used, or should I say available for this area. They show no dust cover thingy there. So, I would go with Roy's idea to make your own. Simple project for anyone and material is available.

    its a foam to take up the space created by the rubber vibration mounts to prevent engine compartment to cabin entry when vent is on....remove the unit & try "self stick vinyl foam weatherseal" (used for doors/windows) applied to back of unit. "frost king" www.frostking.com is 1 manufacturer & comes in various colors (V449 is grey). I grabbed a few rolls at the dollar store.

    That self adhesive foam weather strip is useful stuff. I bought a roll of 6mm wide foam for $2 to replace all the seals in my heater box. It's like new now. It should do the job as a substitute for the wiper motor seal (good tip ragtime!)
