I think my wires might have been moved before, but I've hidden my wiper motor cables without cutting them...mine come out the hole in the door and just tuck under the scuttle to the motor where you cant see them with the wing on
Also, I accidentally put the washer hose through the hole in the top of the wing as pictured when I was putting it back together and it sticks up and out when I shut the bonnet so I had to relocate it back through the correct hole in the wing lol

Just done the wiper motor wire tuck this evening and it can be done without cutting the wires. Just need to de-pin the plug and then feed the 5 wires through were you want them. :nice:
HOW DO I DE PIN THE PLUGS ?!?!?

obnoxious video but.

pretty much this. i used some really fine precision screw drivers to do mine. once you know and get a feel for what you need to do its really simple. I would recommend drawing a diagram of what you are taking apart with the colour codes of the wires, so you put them all back in the same place.

It fits in the glove box. Just need to extend the cable to it from the battery.
