Is there any other thing apart from this? Do amby,s use same wiper motor? One thing more, what amount should be paid for a used 3 speed wiper motor if bought from scrapyard. I am thinking of getting one only for the sake of this socket(switch). My motor is working properly but only because of this it lacks full functionality.

I have flat and clear lens with crystal reflectors and additional position lamp mated to philips 90/100 rally headlamps.

1. I guess you mistook the park lamp bulb holder for the low-beam. The main bulb has 2 pins protruding out. Do you see anything in addition to it. A picture of your reflector would give clarity.
2. Yes they do
3. Depends on bargaining. Tell him that you want it for a college project. You get better discounts. There are only 2 speed wiper motors.

In my Fiat I have replaced the entire set of headlamps with a new set from Maruti Omni which sits in nicely with an all weather 90/100 watt lamp. My headlamps are excellent for night travels also. I have changed this around 10 years back and still they are serving me fine. My vehicle has an alternator also which helps in easy charging. I am not sure - cut out may not be required if you have an alternator.

Another Good Idea would be use the Head lamps of Tempo Traveller whic again are similar to the units on Gypsy, they look good and i think are of the same size. Here a picture of TT Headlights.

Manishalive if the replacement of fiat headlamp is available why to look for any other model one. Are the Lumax make headlights not good or is it that you are just referring it.
BTW can anybody post the pics of wiper motor of PP/ Fiat 1100 fitted in the car so that i can get an idea of its various parts and use them as reference to the dealer. I am able to understand what to get but the dealer is unable to. If i have a pic of the motor, i can show it to him in order to obtain the WIPER PARK SWITCH, which they do not recognise.

Oh yes when original is available well we go for it, I just showed another option in reply to the Maruti omni conversion. And the wiper system for Fiat 1100 and PP is different.

My mistake. I meant the wiper system of PP S1.

Default wiper autopark switch

I took a few photographs few months back of the wiper park switch which was broken. I fixed it myself using feviquick. There is a blue coloured thing attached to the leg or whatever it is. I put it there to extend its length. Otherwise auto-park won't function properly.

Its good that you posted these pics but it does not serve the purpose for me. Can you post the pics of full park switch. It would help a lot if you can post the pics with the park switch installed in the wiper machine. Its for the reference of the spare parts dealer as they are unable to figure out as to which part i am referring.

I have the spare parts catalogue meant for Standard Economy, Deluxe-BE, Deluxe -BE a/c and Deluxe a/c model. I do not know if this is different in PP S1 models. If you require, I can post the entire drawings and spare parts numbers for the entire assembly.

I am posting the pics of the wiper motor with the wiper auto park switch fitted. that yellowish plastic thing in the pic is the auto park switch. i am still in search of a old "new" one but with no luck. :-(

Hey thanks man you did helped me in a true fiat enthusiast way. Those pics are more than necessary and would entirely serve the purpose for me. BTW i doubt if i can procure that part even from scrap dealers as they will not sell it individually without the wiper motor and of course the spare parts shops will be a waste of time.In case (my luck) i find more than one, does anyone needs it or is there any other thing which anyone requires as i would be off to the scrapyard in a few days. We can work out the shipping thing later.
Karthik i would be looking for the steering wheel you require as i would be carrying the print out of it. Here mostly the parts of padmini lookalike models are available. Sorry very less dukkar, SS, parts.
